prd command

Dear developpers,
Is it mandatory to use MPI library for running prd command. I all example mpirun is used ?
Is it possible to use OMP on a 1 processor multi-core machine. Is it also invoked using the -partition command-line switch using openMP too ?
Thanks a lot in advance

yes.

no. if you can run across multiple CPU (cores) with OpenMP, you can use MPI just as well.

axel.

Thanks a lot
I will thus install MPICH on my Windows machine for doing it.
