README for the LLVM* OpenMP* Runtime Library
How to Build Documentation
The main documentation is in Doxygen* format, and this distribution
should come with pre-built PDF documentation in doc/Reference.pdf.
However, an HTML version can be built by executing:
% doxygen doc/doxygen/config
in the runtime directory.
That will produce HTML documentation in the doc/doxygen/generated
directory, which can be accessed by pointing a web browser at the
index.html file there.
If you don't have Doxygen installed, you can download it from
How to Build the LLVM* OpenMP* Runtime Library
The library can be built either using Cmake, or using a makefile that
in turn invokes various Perl scripts. For porting, non X86
architectures, and for those already familiar with Cmake that may be
an easier route to take than the one described here.
Building with CMake
The runtime/Build_With_CMake.txt file has a description of how to
build with Cmake.
Building with the Makefile
The Makefile at the top-level will attempt to detect what it needs to
build the LLVM* OpenMP* Runtime Library. To see the default settings,
make info
You can change the Makefile's behavior with the following options:
omp_root: The path to the top-level directory containing the top-level
Makefile. By default, this will take on the value of the
current working directory.
omp_os: Operating system. By default, the build will attempt to
detect this. Currently supports "linux", "freebsd", "macos", and
arch: Architecture. By default, the build will attempt to
detect this if not specified by the user. Currently
supported values are
"32" for IA-32 architecture
"32e" for Intel(R) 64 architecture
"mic" for Intel(R) Many Integrated Core Architecture
"arm" for ARM* architecture
"aarch64" for Aarch64 (64-bit ARM) architecture
"ppc64" for IBM(R) Power architecture (big endian)
"ppc64le" for IBM(R) Power architecture (little endian)
If "mic" is specified then "icc" will be used as the
compiler, and appropriate k1om binutils will be used. The
necessary packages must be installed on the build machine
for this to be possible (but an Intel(R) Xeon Phi(TM)
coprocessor card is not required to build the library).
compiler: Which compiler to use for the build. Defaults to "icc"
or "icl" depending on the value of omp_os. Also supports
some versions of "gcc"* when omp_os is "linux". The selected
compiler should be installed and in the user's path. The
corresponding Fortran compiler should also be in the path.
See "Supported RTL Build Configurations" below for more
information on compiler versions.
mode: Library mode: default is "release". Also supports "debug".
jobs: The number of parallel jobs for the underlying call to make.
This value is sent as the parameter to the -j flag for make.
This value defaults to "1", but can be set to any positive integer.
To use any of the options above, simple add <option_name>=<value>. For
example, if you want to build with gcc instead of icc, type:
make compiler=gcc
On OS X* machines, it is possible to build universal (or fat) libraries which
include both IA-32 architecture and Intel(R) 64 architecture objects in a
single archive; just build the 32 and 32e libraries separately, then invoke
make again with a special argument as follows:
make compiler=clang build_args=fat
Supported RTL Build Configurations
Supported Architectures: IA-32 architecture, Intel(R) 64, and
Intel(R) Many Integrated Core Architecture
| icc/icl | gcc | clang |
| Linux* OS | Yes(1,5) | Yes(2,4) | Yes(4,6,7) |
| FreeBSD* | No | No | Yes(4,6,7,8) |
| OS X* | Yes(1,3,4) | No | Yes(4,6,7) |
| Windows* OS | Yes(1,4) | No | No |
(1) On IA-32 architecture and Intel(R) 64, icc/icl versions 12.x are
supported (12.1 is recommended).
(2) GCC* version 4.6.2 is supported.
(3) For icc on OS X*, OS X* version 10.5.8 is supported.
(4) Intel(R) Many Integrated Core Architecture not supported.
(5) On Intel(R) Many Integrated Core Architecture, icc/icl versions 13.0
or later are required.
(6) Clang* version 3.3 is supported.
(7) Clang* currently does not offer a software-implemented 128 bit extended
precision type. Thus, all entry points reliant on this type are removed
from the library and cannot be called in the user program. The following
functions are not available:
(8) Community contribution provided AS IS, not tested by Intel.
Front-end Compilers that work with this RTL
The following compilers are known to do compatible code generation for
this RTL: clang (from the OpenMP development branch at ), Intel compilers, GCC. See the documentation
for more details.
