  1. The Windows command line parser removes commas from comma-delimited lists of options. To work around this, simply place the option containing the comma into the Acusim.cnf file. This bypasses the Windows cmd interpreter and the option is passed directly to the executable or script. For example, instead of specifying the following command at the cmd prompt: acuRun -np 2 -hosts machine_1,machine_2 Add this line into the Acusim.cnf file: hosts = machine_1,machine_2 Then you can omit this argument from the launch command and simplify it to the following: acuRun -np 2
  2. All command line options for Acusim programs can be specified on the command line or read from a configuration file. It is often desirable to know precisely where a specific option's value us being set. To accomplish this, simply look at the help listing for the program of interest. For example, when using acuPrep, execute acuPrep -h at the command line to produce the following results: acuPrep: acuPrep: Usage: acuPrep: acuPrep: acuPrep [options] acuPrep: acuPrep: Options: acuPrep: acuPrep: -h print usage and exit acuPrep: help= TRUE [command-line] acuPrep: -pb <str> problem name acuPrep: problem= _undefined [default] acuPrep: -inp <str> input file name (_auto, use <problem>.inp) acuPrep: input_file= _auto [default] acuPrep: -dir <str> working directory acuPrep: working_directory= ACUSIM.DIR [default] acuPrep: -fmt <enum> internal file format: ascii binary acuPrep: file_format= binary [default] acuPrep: -nsd <int> number of subdomains acuPrep: num_subdomains= 1 [default] acuPrep: -echo echo user input into <problem>.<run>.echo acuPrep: echo_input= FALSE [/home/testUser/myConfig.cnf] acuPrep: -prec echo BC precedence acuPrep: echo_precedence= FALSE [default] acuPrep: -tet convert and run as all tet mesh acuPrep: run_as_tets= FALSE [default] acuPrep: -ddc <enum> domain decomposition technique: metis chaco acuddc restart acuPrep: domain_decomposition= chaco [/home/testUser/myConfig.cnf] acuPrep: -acuddc <str> full path to acuDdc executable acuPrep: acuddc_executable= acuDdc [default] acuPrep: -mda <int> pre domain decomposiiton max element agglomeration acuPrep: max_ddc_agglomeration= 1 [default] acuPrep: -cache <int> computation cache size (in Kbytes) acuPrep: cache_size= 1024 [default] acuPrep: -ebc automatically generate element BC acuPrep: auto_generate_ebc= TRUE [default] acuPrep: -rfi automatically generate reference frame interfaces acuPrep: auto_reference_frame_interface= TRUE [default] acuPrep: -bfd set back flow diffusion for outflow Simple BC acuPrep: auto_set_back_flow_diffusion= FALSE [default] acuPrep: -sort sort nodes and elements acuPrep: sort_nodes_and_elements= TRUE [default] acuPrep: -inj ignore elements with negative jacobian acuPrep: ignore_negative_jacobian= FALSE [default] acuPrep: -dump dump input file for easy parsing acuPrep: dump_input= FALSE [default] acuPrep: -dfmt <enum> dump file format: ascii binary acuPrep: dump_format= binary [default] acuPrep: -dfile <str> dump file name (_stdout, output to standard output) acuPrep: dump_file= _stdout [default] acuPrep: -lbuff flush stdout after each line of output acuPrep: line_buff= TRUE [/home/testUser/myConfig.cnf] acuPrep: -v <int> verbose level acuPrep: verbose= 2 [/home/testUser/myConfig.cnf] acuPrep: acuPrep: Configuration Files: acuPrep: acuPrep: ./Acusim.cnf:~/myConfig.cnf:/Applications/Acusim/MachineConfig.cnf acuPrep: acuPrep: Release: 1.7f This output indicates that all options are being read from the command line, or an entry in one of the configuration files that are specified by the user. The user can specify the configuration files to read by setting the ACUSIM_CNF_FILES environment variable (or simply using the default values). In this example, the user has set the environment variable as follows: setenv ACUSIM_CNF_FILES ./Acusim.cnf:~/myConfig.cnf:/Applications/Acusim/MachineConfig.cnf This setting is echoed in the output: acuPrep: Configuration Files: acuPrep: acuPrep: ./Acusim.cnf:~/myConfig.cnf:/Applications/Acusim/MachineConfig.cnf The output also indicates where each option is being set from. For example, the domain decomposition technique (-ddc) option is being set to chaco, and is being read from the file/home/testUser/myConfig.cnf: acuPrep: -ddc <enum> domain decomposition technique: metis chaco acuddc restart acuPrep: domain_decomposition= chaco [/home/testUser/myConfig.cnf]
  3. How do I edit the Acusim.cnf file on Windows - since it is associated with 'SpeedDial'? The simplest way is to add your favorite editor (Notepad, VIM, etc.) to the 'Send To' folder. Then right-click on the Acusim.cnf file, select 'Send To' and select your editor. Click on the link to go to the Microsoft page with instructions on how to add items to 'Send To'.
