Programming Details

C++ is a general-purpose, imperative computer programming language. It is derived from the C language and shares many constructs with it, it also expands into object-orientated programming paradigms.

Icon tick.png There is direct support for openMP and openMPI.

Programming example

#include <omp.h>
#include <iostream> 

int main () 
    int thread_number;
    #pragma omp parallel private(thread_number)
        #pragma omp for schedule(static) nowait
        for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++) 
            thread_number = omp_get_thread_num();
            cout << "Thread " << thread_number << " says " << i << endl;
    return 0;


The program would be compiled in the following way, optional Intel compiler available too:

[username@login01 ~]$  module add gcc/8.2.0
[username@login01 ~]$  g++ -o test2 -fopenmp test2.c (openMP support)
[username@login01 ~]$ ./test2

Thread 11 says 39

Modules Available

The following modules are available for C

  • module add gcc/8.2.0 (GNU compiler)
  • module add intel/2018 (Intel compiler)

Note: OpenMP is a library directive within the compiler and does not require any additional module to be loaded.
