Multi-processing with atlc

The executable program atlc, which is part of the atlc package of programs, can be quite CPU intensive. This is especially troublesome if atlc is executed a large number of times in an itterative loop, as the program desgin_coupler will do if asked to find the phyical dimensions of a directional coupler.

To reduced execution time, the program atlc could (until release 4.5.1) be configured to support multiple processors This obviously requires a computer with more than one CPU.

However, I have recently realised there is a possible problem with the multi-threaded code, so it has been temporarily disabled until the problem is resolved.
