#1738 confirmed enhancement

Update requirements documentation for Cactus

Reported by: Ian Hinder Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Cactus Version: development version
Keywords: documentation Cc:


The Cactus User Guide has a section "Required software" which lists the software needed for Cactus. I think this should list the various language versions which are needed. For example, we could say (if this is the case) that Cactus requires C99 and C++98 or later. The page probably also should be updated to replace SVN with Git.

  • Cactus requires C99 (since ET_2012_11
  • Cactus requires a C++ compiler (since it's main() is in a C++ file)
  • Cactus (flesh and Cactus* arrangements other than tests, examples and the Fortran thorn) do not require any Fortran compiler
  • Einstein Toolkit requires Fortran 2003 (since LoopControl does #1546)
  • Carpet requires a Fortran 90 compiler
  • Carpet requires a C++98 compiler and STL and can use a C++11 compiler
