Subject: [hwloc-users] Windows api threading functions equivalent to hwloc?

Below I posted a simple windows thread creation C++ routine which sets the processor affinity to two cores. What I want is the equivalent code using hwloc. Sorry for being somewhat new to this but I'm not sure what  api calls are equivalent to the windows calls and I did search hwloc.h for "affinity" thinking the function call would be easy to find. More specifically I'm wondered whats the equivalent of " CreateThread ", " SetThreadAffinityMask ",  " GetSystemInfo ", and " WaitForMultipleObjects " in hwloc. Thanks for any useful suggestions. #define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN #include <windows.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <cmath> #include <iostream> HANDLE *m_threads = NULL; static DWORD_PTR WINAPI threadMain(void* p); DWORD_PTR GetNumCPUs()//this function is not actually used by this example { SYSTEM_INFO m_si = {0, }; GetSystemInfo(&m_si); return (DWORD_PTR)m_si.dwNumberOfProcessors; } int main(int argc, char **args) {   DWORD_PTR c = 2; m_threads = new HANDLE[c]; for(DWORD_PTR i = 0; i < c; i++) { DWORD_PTR m_id = 0; DWORD_PTR m_mask = 1 << i; m_threads[i] = CreateThread(NULL, 0, (LPTHREAD_START_ROUTINE)threadMain, (LPVOID)i, NULL, &m_id); SetThreadAffinityMask(m_threads[i], m_mask); //wprintf(L"Creating Thread %d (0x%08x) Assigning to CPU 0x%08x\r\n", i, (LONG_PTR)m_threads[i], m_mask); } WaitForMultipleObjects(c, m_threads, TRUE, INFINITE); return 0; } static DWORD_PTR WINAPI threadMain(void* p) { double result = 0.0; for (int i = 0; i < 1000000000; i++) { result = result + sin(i) * tan(i); } return 0; }
