Multiprocessing in Ubuntu ?


I remember that in Microsoft C# (Visual Studio, etc) there is multiprocessing capability. How about Ubuntu? Can anyone point to some helpful links?

Thanks, - Alex

There are several implementations out there, but mpich is one of the more widely-adopted ones:

Without knowing anything about C#, I'd suspect the OP is actually thinking of multi-threading.

The OP is actually thinking about running portions of executable in different CPU cores simultaneously: Multiprocessing or parallel processing.
