Hi,
The function below contains nested for loops. There are 3 of them. I have given the whole function below for easy understanding. I want to parallelize the code in the innermost for loop as it takes maximum CPU time. Then i can think about outer 2 for loops. I can see dependencies and internal inline functions in the innermost for loop . Can the innermost for loop be rewritten to enable parallelization using openmp pragmas. Please tell how. I am writing just the loop which i am interested in first and then the full function where this loop exists for referance.
Interested in parallelizing the loop mentioned below.
//* LOOP WHICH I WANT TO PARALLELIZE *//
for (y = 0; y < 4; y++)
{
refptr = PelYline_11 (ref_pic, abs_y++, abs_x, img_height, img_width);
LineSadBlk0 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk0 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk0 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk0 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk1 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk1 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk1 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk1 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk2 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk2 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk2 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk2 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk3 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk3 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk3 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
LineSadBlk3 += byte_abs [*refptr++ - *orgptr++];
}
The full function where this loop exists is below for referance.
