The problem is not about setting up an online judge. It is about users
submitting code which produces errors by compiler and clogging the
Say an C++ template file takes 3 secs for output and there are 300
users , 1000 secs are wasted. The submissions are much more than that.
If we stop at the first error it would only take maybe < 1s.

About parallel, gcc a.c b.c d.c can they be output to a1.out b1.out
d1.out  ? Invoking gcc for each of a,b,c seems slow for me . Do we
have anything better ?
