It is important to use this command (or a Makefile processed with mpireconfig) particularly when linking programs, as it provides the necessary libraries. It can also simplify the use of the MPE profiling libraries, through the use of the -mpilog, -mpitrace, and -mpianim commands.
|-mpilog||Build version that generate MPE log files
|-mpitrace||Build version that generates traces
|-mpianim||Build version that generates real-time
|-show||Show the commands that would be used without
|-help||Give short help
|-echo||Show exactly what this program is doing.
This option should normally not be used.
|others||are passed to the compiler or linker. For example, -c
causes files to be compiled, -g selects compilation with debugging
on most systems, and -o name causes linking with the output
executable given the name name.
To compile a single file foo.f, use
mpif77 -c foo.f
To link the output and make an executable, use
mpif77 -o foo foo.oCombining compilation and linking in a single command
mpif77 -o foo foo.fis a convenient way to build simple programs.
