How is the Thread-local storage support on Windows, I ask since I read the Wikipedia page on TLS and it implicitly says that the TLS __thread keyword is only for Intel C++ compilers on Linux https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thread-local_storage#C.2B.2B
@Jim I though TLS was compiler specific, the article you linked to is for the Visual Studio compiler, or? This question is for the ICC not the MSVC.
ICC recognizes __declspec( thread ) when compiling on Windows.
Consider using "#define __thread __declspec( thread )" when on Windows
