I downloaded and installed Code Composer Studio version 5.2.0.00044 (for windows) for use with a TMS320C6678 evaluation module. It's an LE version, I believe, with a XDS560v2 emulator from Blackhawk. I've managed to get the examples running, as well as a sequential codebase I had lying around in C for CPUs. (I was surprised not to need to change a single line of code to get that working.)
However, I'm having trouble getting an OpenMP version working. In particular, the compiler version seems to be 7.3.1 and though I can add the -omp flag (it's on the project properties), there is no "omp.h" in the includes or anything else that I can see that hints at being an openmp include. And I get undefined symbol errors on the calls to get the number of threads ( omp_get_num_threads ) and the thread number ( omp_get_thread_num ) , plus the critical region pragma ( GOMP_critical_end , GOMP_critical_start , I believe ).
After looking through the forums here a bit I believe it's been announced that OpenMP support would only be offered in the upcoming 7.4.0 compiler (April 30 or so?).
Would anyone please confirm me whether my findings are correct and, if not, correct me? Also, if there is a pre-release library or something similar to enable openmp on my setup, how could I possibly get it?
Thank you for your attention.
We have the same problem here and we are waiting for the 7.4.0 compiler to be released. You can't use OpenMP right now.
A beta version of the C6000 compiler 7.4 is available here : https://www-a.ti.com/downloads/sds_support/TICodegenerationTools/beta.htm
But I did not manage to use openMP, I still have the same problems : I can't find a "omp.h" file, and while linking, I get unresolved symbols (GOMP_... and omp_get_... ).
Should we wait until 04/30 for the release ?
