I've been writing a brute force algorithm for a side hobby and I need some advice how I'd distribute code processes from different spawned threads. After reading TRPL over and over, I don't understand whether the "process" being parallelized are different functions or the main function.
I'd appreciate it if I got some advice on this .
I'm not sure I follow your question. Generally when spawning threads, it runs the closure you pass to it.
This creates a new thread. On that thread, the provided closure is run. In this case, the closure just calls the
do_something function and then exits.
Maybe this is a clearer example:
let a = hello;
A closure is basically an unnamed function if that is unfamiliar to you.
Can I spawn multiple threads from a closure?
I mean, any thread can spawn new threads. You just have to be careful. You might have a problem where unlimited threads spawn.
It is easier to just spawn new threads from the main thread.
I suggest you take a look at Rayon. It may or may not be for you but everyone developing in rust generally should know it exists.
I'll start reading into Rayon! Thanks, was able to get a grasp of what the hell I'm trying to do
