Part of the design of the Kori language is to incorporate autothreading. Autothreading is when the language decides where threads would be useful, removing the burden from the programmer. The main problem with autothreading is determining what size chunks should allotted to each thread. Too small and the program spends more time deciding what to thread than doing its job. Too large and the program does not benefit greatly from threading. Getting it just right is a difficult balancing act.

Last time, I mentioned the tools I would be using. After some investigation, I discovered that the documentation for GNU AutoTools was crappy. This is surprising considering how long it has been in use. ☹
It seems that all software build systems have crappy documentation, so the final decision will be made when I figure out which is the least crappy. In the mean time, I will discuss creating a simple system using GNU AutoTools.
