Multithread this code

I tried to optimize this code by utilizing multiple threads, but the result (on a Core 2 Duo, two cores) is not satisfying.

Can the memory allocation be optimized somehow? (that is what they do in C and C++ versions of this program, besides really simple and effective multithreading with OpenMP)

I agree. Here's the link:
