What is the HPCVL Working Template (HWT) ?

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 HPCVL Working Template is a toolset designed to facilitate code development and testing, with a specific emphasis on parallel programming.
The HWT supports the Fortran, C, and C++ programming languages. Most of the packages is written in these and can be recompiled on any (Unix-based) platform. At present, a version generated on Solaris 9 using the native Sun compilers is installed on the HPCVL Sunfire cluster and accessible for its users. Versions for other platforms may be produced on request.
The HWT consists of a number of script files that can be invoked by the user, as well as a library that contains essential routines, a set of modules, and some auxiliary files. It is only available in pre-compiled form, i.e. no source-code is supplied.
