# Parallel programming with OpenMP

This repository contains various exercises and examples on parallel programming with OpenMP.

A C or Fortran compiler supporting OpenMP is needed for building the code. Simple cases can
be built and run as:

 - gcc -o exe -fopenmp exercise.c 
 - gfortran -o exe -fopenmp exercise.c

where gcc/gfortran and -fopenmp should be replaced by proper compiler commands 
and options if you are not using the GNU compilers.
