Write a program that
Provide two versions of the program, one implemented using Cilk and one implemented using standard C++11 threads. You may consider using either merge or quick sort.

On local machines you'll mostly likely have available a GNU compiler. Cilk extensions are present since g++ version 4.9 (try g++ –version to check your version number).
If you can't manage to have a recent g++ version of the compiler on your machine, please use r720-phi.itc.unipi.it. On the remote machine you may use icc with no specific flags to compile the Cilk code.
If you prefer using the local tools to edit:
