GeoPic Me is a demo page to showcase Open Parallel's work with TBB (Threading Building Blocks). We worked for some months on exposing TBB functionality in script languages and you are now playing with the outcomes.
TBB is a threading library developed by Intel that makes developing with a multicore CPU much easier and takes a lot out of the scary threading issues normally associated with multicore programming.
We decided that PHP end Perl are the two languages we want to focus on and took a different path for both. The PHP work set our to enhance the HipHop engine and push the TBB integration in HipHop further. The Perl integration is a extension that targets the Perl5 interpreter and extend the core language.
