Posted By: Hildegarde Miller     Category: C Programming     Views: 7639

Write a Program to compute sum of an array using parallel processing.

Code for Program to compute sum of an array using parallel processing in C Programming

# include<sys/types.h>
# include<sys/ipc.h>
# include<sys/shm.h>

int main()
{
    int a[10]={1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10};
    int sum=0,i;
    key_t key=0X1000;
    int *ptr;
    int id,shmid,shmid1;

    int pfork(int);
    void pjoin(int ,int);
    
    shmid=shmget(key,4,IPC_CREAT|0666);
    
    if(shmid < 0)
        printf("ERROR\n");
    else
        printf("Shmid Is %d\n",shmid);
    
    shmid1=shmget(key,4,IPC_CREAT|0666);

    printf("Shmid1=%d\n",shmid1);

    ptr=shmat(shmid,0,0);

    *ptr=0;    
    id=pfork(2);

    if(id==0)
    {
        for(i=0;i<10;i+=2)
        {
            sum=sum+a[i];
        }
        printf("Sum in parent is %d\n",sum);

    }

    pjoin(2,id);

    sum=sum+*ptr;
    printf("the sum is %d\n",sum);
    return 0;

    int j;
    for(j=1;j<x;j++)
    {
