I've used MPI before, albeit in C, and I have a few questions (before
even reading the documentation fully). I am also very excited with the
prospect of actually having an MPI bindings implementation for C++ in
I see that this requires any one of three MPI implementations -- and
there are a lot of differences between these implementations
internally and architecturally. There's also the question of compiler
compliance, and platform dependence -- although I haven't seen the
code yet, my question would be more of pragmatic in the sense that it
maintain a common STL-like interface without breaking the
distributed/parallel computing frame.
I would like to see really more of this -- though much like in
parallel supercomputing applications, the issue really will be more of
performance than anything.
Anyone in the list can do a review right?
