  • Zusammenfassung

    Practically all new computer systems are parallel. The mindsof the majority of software engineers are not, and most of existing sourcecode is still sequential. Within only a few years, multicore processorschanged the system landscape, but the competence to reengineer forcomputer systems of today is shared among a small community of soft-ware engineers.In this paper we present AutoFuture, an approach that automaticallyidentifies parallelizable locations in sequential source code and reengi-neers them for multicore. This approach demands minimal change tosequential source code. AutoFutures make parallel code easy to under-stand and increase the acceptance of parallel software.
