HELLO_MPI
Hello World, Using MPI


HELLO_MPI is a FORTRAN90 program which prints out "Hello, World!", while invoking the MPI parallel programming system.

If you're just trying to learn MPI, or learning how to use MPI on a different computer system, or in batch mode, it's helpful if you start with a very simple program with a tiny amount of output that should print immediately if things are working well.

Examples and Tests:

HELLO_FSU compiles and runs the program on the FSU HPC cluster.

HELLO_LOCAL compiles and runs the program on the local system, which might work if OpenMPI is installed, and which might make sense if your system has multiple cores.

HELLO_SYSX compiles and runs the program on Virginia Tech's System X cluster.
