can someone please tell me what tools could help me in parallelise single threaded code. I tried to use Intel TBB, Intel Thread checker. Seems like both are not supported. Though TBB is open source and is supposed to be supported on AMD archi, im not able to install on my AMD Athlon64. Please help me find the missing link.
                                              Also if there any AMD specific tools that would help me in suggesting the hot spots, problem areas that wud hamper my effort to parallelise legacy c, c++ code kindly suggest.

Also i want to unit test a piece of code that i've parallelised using openmp. Could someone tel me if there is any AMD tool out there. If not how cud i do it without knowin the functionality of the function(Code being so huge i didnt try to understand the function).
