This function sets the value of the global variable stored in
options()$cpgen.threads to the assigned integer.
Note_1: The assigned value may exceed the number of physical cores present but that might lead to dramatical
decrease in performance.
Note_2: The function can override the global variable 'OMP_NUM_THREADS' (if
global=TRUE and hence also other non-cpgen functions
are affected by a call to
Integer scalar that specifies the number of threads to be used by
boolean, controls whether to print a message
boolean, change openmp threads globally (might effect other libraries)
Changes the global variable
cpgen.threads to the value in
