I am facing a fairly big dilemma on whether to always enable the parallel programming support on the scripts side of the new engine of Falcon or not. Doing that costs some 50% performance on the mean case, but not doing that has heavy consequences. Also there might be solutions combining the bests of both worlds that I simply overlooked, that is, a way to perform the heavy operations needed to ensure item write visibility consistency across agents that are not so heavy as the simple, but effective, way I am using now.

I wrote the following post in the Falcon Programming Language Goolge group; I am repeating it here on my blog to show it also to those ones that have no access to that resource.



Hey ppl,

I need an informed opinion from the community on how to clear a problem, and I don't want to have just one mind set on this. I need more brains on this problem, so, if you can think on this and possibly spread the challenge, you'll be doing some great favor to all the future users of our language.
