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

Hi Samuel and Brice,

I made the changes to the code. I tried running it and it crashed around line 53 with this statement
(I debugged it by stepping through the program).

hwloc_set_thread_cpubind(topology, handle,
hwloc_get_obj_by_type(topology, HWLOC_OBJ_CORE, t)->cpuset,

I also wanted to know what these two lines mean:

bitmap = hwloc_bitmap_alloc();
hwloc_bitmap_only(bitmap, t);

and do I need those?

#include <pthread.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <math.h>
#include <hwloc.h>
/* A task that takes some time to complete. The id identifies distinct
tasks for printed messages. */

hwloc_topology_t topology;

void *task(int id)
printf("Task %d started\n", id);
int i;
double result = 0.0;
for (i = 0; i < 1000000000; i++)
result = result + sin(i) * tan(i);
printf("Task %d completed with result %e\n", id, result);
/* Same as 'task', but meant to be called from different threads. */
void *threaded_task(void *t)
long id = (long) t;
printf("Thread %ld started\n", id);
printf("Thread %ld done\n", id);
/* Run 'task' num_tasks times serially. */
void *parallel(int num_tasks)
int num_threads = num_tasks;


pthread_t thread[num_threads];

int rc;
long t;
hwloc_bitmap_t bitmap;

for (t = 0; t < num_threads; t++)
printf("Creating thread %ld\n", t);
rc = pthread_create(&thread[t], NULL, threaded_task, (void *)t);
HANDLE handle = pthread_getw32threadhandle_np(thread[t]);
bitmap = hwloc_bitmap_alloc();
hwloc_bitmap_only(bitmap, t);
hwloc_set_thread_cpubind(topology, handle,
hwloc_get_obj_by_type(topology, HWLOC_OBJ_CORE, t)->cpuset,

if (rc)
printf("ERROR: return code from pthread_create() is %d\n", rc);


int main()
