The PTP Parallel Language Development Tools Eclipse plug-in provides tools to aid in MPI Programming and other parallel languages and tools.
The newest features include:
This plug-in requires the base Eclipse platform, the CDT, and MPI and/or OpenMP.
Note that running MPI or OpenMP is not really required for the PLDT to function and provide analysis and help with MPI and OpenMP development. Just the header files are required in order to know which "artifacts" should be located.
To run the core part of PTP (Parallel Tools Platform, http://eclipse.org/ptp, to run and debug parallel programs), you need whatever runtime it requires. Currently (November 2006) this is OpenMPI, which is available for Linux and Mac Only. But for PLDT, this is not required, and PLDT will work on Windows as well.
The following instructions describe setup and run information.
