Unix Command-Line Interface
You may download a tar ball that contains
a suite of command-line tools
to compile parallel executables with
launch jobs through PCM,
and queue jobs using a command-line queuing system:
macmpi.tar.gz compressed archive
(144 kB download in .tar.gz)
Requires OS X 10.2.1 or later, the
OS X Developer Tools, and
PCM v1.7 or later and adminstrator access.
Contains a readme and documentation and the following utilities:
- mpicc (requires the OS X Developer Tools to be installed first)
- mpif77 (requires a f77 compiler)
- mpif90 (requires a f90 compiler)
- mpif95 (requires a f95 compiler)
- mpig77 (requires g77, available from Fink)
- mpixlc (requires IBM's xlc compiler)
- mpixlf (requires IBM's xlf compiler)
- mpirun - launches jobs through PCM
- pstat - queries for nodes, jobs, and their status
- pqsub - submits jobs to PCM's queuing system
- pqstat - queries the status of jobs in the PCM's queuing system
You may download the source code to a Unix-based executable that allows you
to launch jobs from OS X's Unix command line interface:
plaunch makefile and source code
(5 kB download in .tar.gz)

You may use the above code at your own risk.
The Unix code above should serve many purposes as is, but it is not a panacea.
Therefore, please do go ahead and modify the source as you see fit for your particular situation,
or use pieces of them to create new tools and capabilities (e.g., a custom queuing system
in AppleScript and/or Unix).
If your additions could benefit the community, please supply them so that others
You may also contribute via the
parallel-mac-list Mailing List.
The code here will be updated over time.
