Hello HipHop users and developers!
Today July 26, 2010 we announce our HipHop branch/extension that aims to push the integration of Intel’s Threading Building Blocks library into HipHop beyond the already utilized data structures (such as the concurrent_hash_map).
In particular we are looking to get some parallel functionality exposed to PHP itself through this extension.
We have already had some initial success with a parallel_for implementation that can be used from PHP scripts using a familiar API (Aligned with the C++ API but slightly modified to better suit PHP style).
The thread TBB in HipHop shows the discussion with Facebook engineers about our work
