In this blog post, you will witness how multi-core CPU executes different processes and do context switching.
We will use the following program, this program merely takes input from the user and prints input string after some time periodically.
I presume after compiling the above file, we get the output file: ‘OSPlayground.exe’.
Now open a command prompt and navigate to the path that contains the above binary. Run the following command and witness the magic.
Command to use: start /b OSPlayground && OSPlayground
The command prompt will ask you to enter the string a couple of times since we executed the program twice.
I had inputted EARTH! for the first process from the command prompt and MARS! for another one.
The above program is executed on a multicore processor.
