Hi, it will *never* be twice as fast. My best speed up was 1.8 times faster. However this will always depend on the communication overhead of the algorithm.

Visual KAP is not longer distributed, Visual KAP sales has stoped at 31, August 2001, KAP is only for OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX SUIF is experimetal and has only a MIPS backend. What plans did you expect with this compilers ? Regards Jens
