NAME

       al_get_cpu_count - Allegro 5 API

SYNOPSIS

              #include <allegro5/allegro.h>

              int al_get_cpu_count(void)

DESCRIPTION

       Returns  the number of CPU cores that the system Allegro is running on has and which could
       be detected, or a negative number if detection failed.   Even  if  a  positive  number  is
       returned,  it  might be that it is not correct.  For example, Allegro running on a virtual
       machine will return the amount of CPU's of the VM, and not that of the underlying system.

       Furthermore even if the number is correct, this only gives you information about the total
       CPU  cores  of  the system Allegro runs on.  The amount of cores available to your program
       may be less due to circumstances such as programs that are currently running.

       Therefore, it's best to use this for advisory purposes only.  It is certainly a  bad  idea
       to  make  your  program  exclusive  to  systems  for which this function returns a certain
       “desirable” number.

       This function may be called prior to al_install_system(3alleg5) or al_init(3alleg5).
