Multi-core programming in Apalis iMX6 and Ixora carrier board

Hi All, I would like to make multi-core programming on Apalis 2.7. I would like to know if it is doable, and do I need to install any libraries. Thank you in advance!

Which language are you looking to use? Most modern languages allow for multithreading, so you won’t have any issues utilising multiple cores at once on a quad-core Apalis. The application I’m developing at the moment makes considerable use of multithreading with c/c++, and I will likely use the Apalis Quad 2GB as well.

Our Linux supports pthreads, and our images use glibc (GNU C Library) as C and C++ runtime library and has pthreads support. This should enable multithreaded (and hence multi-core) applications.
