I'm beginning to try to write some distributed programs, and I have some basic questionson the Intel MPI library.
(1)Can you use the intel MPI library without the use of a middleware ? (when you use MPICH2, for example, you have to run your programs through mpiexec.exe, a middleware)
(2)Is the entire MPI-2 standart implemented in the intel MPI library ?
(3)Can you make Windows compatible programs with it?
(4)What are the advantages of Intel's MPI library over (free) ones like mpich2, ... .
Thanks in advance.
