Adventures in Computing

I am almost done with the work I need to do for my thesis. If I can just get this final program to run, and run it a number of times, taking statistics, I should be completely finished.

The trick is getting the program to run. There is some major mistake that I must have made in my program, such that it works for small numbers of processors, but not for larger numbers of processors. I took it over to my programming guru officemate, and unfortunately he could not figure out what I had done wrong. So I am back to square one.

I'm thinking of rewriting my code in C++ instead of C, because C++ is much more careful about memory allocation than C. C will let you get away with just about anything.
