Parallelizing loops is an art. Its an application level thing for the most part. It does not happen automatically.

Though my graduate school professor's thesis was about a parallelizing compiler. I don't think there are any parallelizing JVMs at the moment. I could probably make some nice $$$ If I built one

I hate recommending my own book -- mainly because there is no way I can come off as anything else but bias.

However, in the book, we devote a whole chapter on this very subject -- the manual parallelization of loops for multiprocessor machines.

I'm told your book is very good. Considering it's coming from an experienced, picky, cynical programmer I'd say it must be.

EDIT: That is to say the compliment is coming from one like that.

Henry is also an experienced, picky, cynical programmer. And I really liked his book, too. You should buy a copy!

I'll borrow the experienced, cynical, picky programmer's copy when he's done. What good are dad's if they can't lend you a book?
 
Look ma! I'm selling my stuff!
