WARNING: THIS FORMULA IS NOW PART OF HOMEBRW
This tap is kept for information only. Please use brew install libomp.
Add OpenMP for Apple Clang. Apple Clang now has support for OpenMP, but it has been disabled in the driver and is not included with High Sierra. It can be built and used, though; this formula will build it and provides hints on the correct usage.
brew install CLIUtils/apple/libomp
This, by default, makes
libomp.dylib available in
/usr/local/*, though you can always
brew unlink libomp if you want to.
There have been a few other formula in the past, such as clang-omp, that provided special compilers and other tricks to add OpenMP. This is not like those; this is for the built-in system Clang. On at least High Sierra, this is now possible due to the fact that it is based on a version of Clang (4.0) that has OpenMP support; it's just not built and included by Apple.
This is the message printed by the formula:
On Apple Clang, you need to add several options to use OpenMP's front end instead of the standard driver option. This usually looks like: -Xpreprocessor -fopenmp -lomp You might need to make sure the lib and include directories are discoverable if /usr/local is not searched: -L$(brew --prefix libomp)/lib -I$(brew --prefix libomp)/include For CMake, the following will flags will cause the OpenMP::OpenMP_CXX target to be set up correctly: -DOpenMP_CXX_FLAGS="-Xpreprocessor -fopenmp -I$(brew --prefix libomp)/include" -DOpenMP_CXX_LIB_NAMES="omp" -DOpenMP_omp_LIBRARY=$(brew --prefix libomp)/lib/libomp.a
