Slides for the VSCSE Tutorial (July 14, 2011) -- are moved to the end of the page


This year we are requesting that tutorial participants pre-install Eclipse on their laptops before attending.

Some alternatives for those unable to pre-install Eclipse are available, including a LiveDVD.

  • These Instructions are for installing the Eclipse and PTP client on your machine. None of the remote machine setup is included here, since we have done that for the TG11 tutorial participants.
  • If you are setting up Eclipse and PTP for use on your own remote cluster, please see the Release Notes for how to configure the remote machine.

Short version of installation instructions

  • You need Java - Sun or IBM versions (not Linux's GCJ) - see Installing Java for more information
  • Download one of the following from (This is Eclipse 3.7, also known as "Indigo")
    • "Eclipse IDE for Parallel Application Developers" is the preferred download for science and engineering parallel application developers, it has C/C++ and Fortran development tools, Parallel Tools Platform, and Linux Tools
  • Unzip/untar and execute the "eclipse" executable (inside the eclipse subdirectory).
  • Please see the longer instructions (ptp-tg11-02-pre-install.pdf) for details on how to update your code.
