The Chapel Parallel Programming Language


Installing Chapel using Homebrew

Homebrew users can install a single-locale build of Chapel on Mac/Linux as follows:

  1. Make sure your brew is up-to-date: brew update

  2. Install the Chapel formula: brew install chapel

  3. Note that for a homebrew install, $CHPL_HOME can be determined by running:
    chpl --print-chpl-home

  4. If you're not already familiar with Chapel, jump to the "Compile an example program" step in the Quickstart instructions.


Homebrew users who want multi-locale support will need to download Chapel and build from source.
