Dear Bioc team,
I'd like to ask for your advice on the parallelization within a Bioc
package. Please point me to a better place if this mailing list is not
After a bit of thinking I decided that I'd like to parallelize processing
at the level of C++ code. Would you strongly recommend not to and use an R
approach instead (e.g. "future")?
If parallel C++ is ok, what would be the best solution for all major OSs?
My initial choice was OpenMP, but then it seems that Apple has something
against it (https://mac.r-project.org/openmp/). My own dev environment is
mostly Big Sur/ARM64, but I wouldn't want to drop its support anyway.

(On the actual task: loading and specific processing of very large BAM
files, ideally significantly faster than by means of Rsamtools as a backend)
