General Info

1) The preferred OS is Linux. All students will have access to a Linux server during the course.

3) If you have problems executing the BLUPF90 binaries in Linux or MacOS, change the permission for the file using the following command

chmod a+x <filename>


chmod 777 <filename>

4) If you try to run any program and get a message about segmentation fault, this is because the program tried to access an inappropriate memory area or accessed it abnormally.

When the program fails (crashes) without any messages, most likely, a segmentation fault has occurred.

There are possible reasons for this error.

  • Missing configuration in your computing environment
  • Running out of free memory
  • A bug in the program

Please type the following command before running the BLUPF90 programs.

ulimit -s unlimited
