In Topic: Any good cross platform C++ scheduler libraries?

21 March 2015 - 01:27 AM

PPL is a very good library, but for unspecified reasons isn't meeting your criteria apparently.Could you spell out your requirements instead of just asking for a "good" library?Pretend not everyone on the forum is intimately familiar with C#'s tasks library or what pieces of it you rely on. In fact, don't pretend. :)

I was under the impression that PPL was not cross platform due to it being a Microsoft library?

In Topic: Possible to be a (good) software developer without owning a PC?

Would you still have access to a PC? If so in what capacity. What do you do at Work?


I use to work in the games industry but now work for a general software company, I have full access to a PC at my work, limited to between Monday and Friday. I doubt they would let me work on side projects that weren't to do with work as ferrous mentioned, but I could be wrong on this.


That being said, I don't really want to take on any new projects based on the amount of time I spent of my last one and the lack of success it had.

In Topic: someone help me ID this pattern?

I think the closest Software Design pattern to what you are describing is the Command Pattern

In Topic: OpenGL, RAII and Multi-threading

Thanks for the replies. All of the sugested methods work, I was just looking for the best way to structure this for scalability.



This is what we do in our very huge in-house game engine.
It saves a lot of trouble, prevents retarded bugs, etc.


Can I ask, do you abstract the entire rendering interface? Or is this just for resource allocation? I have no intention of creating a layer between the application code and OpenGL but for the case I have stated it poses a lot of benefits.


I'll try some of the suggests methods and see which one fits best.
