"Installing" Hippo BETA r26

The package comes as a zip file with precompiled static binaries. The current I/O interface of hippo is very simple: It expects all its input files in the current directory. Thus, one typically makes a working directory, copies files (such as hippo_input.txt, pdbs, *.dat) into this directory and copies (or symlinks) the hippo executable there as well. Then one simply runs

Code: Select all

Depending on your CPU you will have to use the hippo or the hippo_p3 binary, and if you want to run in parallel, use the *_mpi version. More can be found on the wiki page on Installing Hippo.
