Parallel Programming: January 2013 Update

SequentialCaveman
This release of Is Parallel Programming Hard, And, If So, What Can You Do About It? features the (very skeletal) beginnings of the data-structures chapter, twelve new cartoons, and general updates to the first seven chapters. It also includes contributions from Kornilios Kourtis, Namhyung Kim, Ricardo Fabbri and his class, and Yuchen Dai.

As always, git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulmck/perfbook.git will be updated in real time.

Programming is hard, parallel programming is very hard, and I don't even want to think about what working with qbits is going to be like...

For a really complex system...
... imagine all the fun you could have with a system consisting of an uncountably infinite number of qbits running an algorithm with aleph-double-prime computational complexity! ;-)

At the very least it would make for a secure passphrase.. and certainly contribute a great deal to making others redundant!

Can't say as I know which would crack first, the passphrases or the minds of the people attempting to program it!

Re: how to get the source code in book
On Linux or other UNIX-like systems with git installed, do the following:

git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulmck/perfbook.git
cd perfbook/CodeSamples

The code will be in this directory tree. You can use a "find" command to look for the filenames listed in the book, for example.
