The compiler used varies according to the type of the node processors and
whether you are on the SRM or on a remote host.
The host program is compiled using
All host programs must be compiled with the
-host switch on a local host
-lhost switch on a remote host.
RX node programs are compiled using the
CX node programs are compiled on the local host using the native compilers
On remote hosts, CX node programs are compiled using
the cross compilers
All node programs should be compiled with the
Suppose we have an iPSC/860 system consisting only of RX nodes. Let
be the host and node programs respectively.
The host program can be compiled on the local host (SRM) as follows:
The node program can be compiled on the local host or a workstation as follows:
cc -host myhost.c -o myhost
icc -node myprog.c -o myprog
Consult your system administrator for details of your local configuration. For more information on compiling, see the section on System Commands in the iPSC/860 User's Guide.
