Hi everyone, just joined the forum. I'm new to parallel programming, and I have what is hopefully a simple question: What are thread bound filters useful for? I got an inkling that they are mainly for interfacing with other threading solutions? But was wondering if say, tying an I/O filter to one thread might improve I/O speed at all?
The intended usage of thread bound filters is in situations where execution of a filter depends on some context that is hard or impossible toset up in TBB worker threads (or to transfer there). But I believe our creative users will find out some other scenarios to apply thread bound filters for good :)
