Your First Program on Cori

To run a program on Cori you must either compile your own code or use a pre-built application. In the following example, we'll guide you through compiling and running the "Hello World" code shown below. Cori has two kinds of compute nodes: "Intel Haswell" and "Intel Xeon Phi". This pages refers to the Haswell nodes only, for simplicity. "Hello World" Example Using your favorite text editor (e.g. vi, emacs) open a new file called "helloWorld.f90". You can copy the example below by using  "view… Read More »
