The command to create a binary for the compute pool is "cc". By default "cc" uses the Portland Group (PGI) compiler. Modules are available on the HPC systems to change compiler vendors and versions.

To create a serial code for the login nodes with PGI C-compiler use "pgcc". For GNU C-compiler use "gcc".
