User Shell Setup

To set up your user shell with Accelerator you need to know where the Altair Accelerator software has been installed.

Ask your system administrator.

User Setup: C-Shell, TCSH

Choose one of two choices:
  1. Modify your ~/.cshrc file directly by adding the following line:
    # Add this to your .cshrc
    source /<installation_directory>/<version>/<platform>/common/etc/vovrc.csh
  2. Run the vovsetupuser script, which creates a ~/.vovrc file and modifies your ~/.cshrc file to source the ~/.vovrc file.
    % cd <installation_directory>/<version>/<platform>/
    % cd common/scripts
    % ./vovsetupuser -csh

User Setup: Bourne Shell, K-Shell, Z-Shell, Bash

Choose one of two choices:
  1. Source the file $VOVDIR/etc/ It is recommended that you add the following line to your ~/.profile file:
    # Add this to your .profile or .bashrc
    . <installation_directory>/<version>/<platform>//common/etc/
  2. Run the vovsetupuser script.
    % cd <installation_directory>/<version>/<platform>/
    % cd common/scripts
    % ./vovsetupuser -sh

User Setup: Windows Command Shell

If Accelerator is installed in directory R:\rtda\2019.01, you can set up your cmd shell by executing:
c:> R:\rtda\2019.01\win64\bat\vovinit.bat

Verify Your Setup

  1. Run the following Altair Accelerator command to verify that your setup works:
    % vovarch
  2. Run the command vovversion to show the version of Accelerator that is installed.
    % vovversion
