    parallel sorting

    Hi,

    I am interested in implementing parallel sorting algorithms for comparison. They just have to sort a list of integers.

    Though I am not very familiar with the whole area, can anyone suggest which parallel algorithms would be best? basically easiest to implement......

    would be much appreciated, ty

    While I am here, I came across the library #include <unistd.h>
    anyone know what it is for?

    There are lots of functions in it, like stat(), opendir(), and mkdir().

    ahhkay thanks, when I use it thought my compiler is saying unable to open include file unistd.h
    is there anywhere I could get this to put it amond my libraries?

    What compiler are you using? <unistd.h> is a POSIX function, and some compilers for Windows (or DOS) don't support it.

    What do you want to use from it?

    Yea I am using borland 5.5 and compiling it in dos. It was just that I had an example program I wanted to run, to see what the output was so I could maybe understand it better, and it included that library. I suppose it isn't that important.

    But anyway if anyone has any info on parallel sorting algorithms, that I mentioned in the first post here, it would be great...

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
