Subject: Re: [OMPI docs] How to compile OpenMPI applications?

We generally refrain from helping students with assignments as that somewhat violates the intent of the teacher, but we can certainly provide direction. Constructing your own version of mpicc would mean that you dig thru the various .m4 files in the config directory to see what compiler and linker flags are being set. The code base tests the local environment using the .m4 files to determine which are applicable.

Good luck with your assignment!
