linking GNU fortran with OpenMP

linking GNU fortran with OpenMP

linking GNU fortran with OpenMP


I use MigGW in Windows and want to test using OpenMP parallel processing in my Fortran program
and compile the code with -fopenmp but the linker returns with error

C./mingw/bin/.../lib/gcc/mingw32/4.8.1/../../../ ... cannot find -lpthread

Which MinGW package is missing?

There is no problem compiling, linking and executing if I omitt the -fopenmp

I have a 64 bit installation.

There must be something wrong with your MinGW installation. I used OpenMP in some older threads e.g.:

I have the library mentioned by xwb in my installation of MinGW in 2 directories:

RE: linking GNU fortran with OpenMP

OK, I removed and installed again the POSIX packages and now it works. Thanks
