opal_wrapper - Back-end Open MPI wrapper command


opal_wrapper [options]


opal_wrapper is not meant to be called directly by end users. It is automatically invoked as the back-end by the Open MPI wrapper commands such as: mpicc, mpiCC, mpic++, and mpifort (and its legacy/deprecated names mpif77 and mpif90).

Some Open MPI installations may have additional wrapper commands, and/or have renamed the wrapper compilers listed above to avoid executable name conflicts with other MPI implementations. Hence, you may also have wrapper compilers installed including the following names: mpifort.openmpi (and the legacy/deprecated names mpif90.openmpi and mpif77.openmpi), mpicxx.openmpi, mpiCC.openmpi, mpicc.openmpi, mpic++.openmpi, opalcc, opalc++, ortecc, and ortec++,
