Simple CPU burn program for the major UNIX systems: AIX, BSD, HP-UX, Linux, Solaris etc (full list in the source file #defines). It will discover # of CPU cores and fork the threads to create load on all cores by default.

The number of threads and memory block size can be changed from command line.
