How do I run Siesta interactively?

Please note: The FAQ pages at the HPCVL website are continuously being revised. Some pages might pertain to an older configuration of the system. Please let us know if you encounter problems or inaccuracies, and we will correct the entries.

The program is run by typing

/opt/siesta/2.0.2/32/serial-siesta < input.fdf
for the 32-bit version, or
/opt/siesta/2.0.2/64/serial-siesta < input.fdf
for the 64-bit version. Here, the input.fdf file is meant to be the input file for a Siesta run. To find out how to make an input file, please check the Siesta Manual.
