is there a compiler that actually makes use of a second cpu?
As I read (maybe wrong), that Visual c++ wouldn't...
...of course I can imagine compiling big projects with many
tasks (threads) then surely do use a second cpu, as they are a
quantity that is distributed by the operating system amongst
the CPUs. Is there a compiler that explicitly supports "SMP" though?
I heard that gcc does (of course after you got your kernel
compiled for SMP) , but then why the hell wouldn't
