The Chapel Parallel Programming Language


Installing Chapel on Mac OS X

Installing Chapel via Mac Homebrew

Mac Homebrew users can install a single-locale (shared memory) build of Chapel:

  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 is effectively /usr/local/Cellar/chapel/1.19.0/libexec/.
  4. If you're unfamiliar with Chapel, refer to $CHPL_HOME/QUICKSTART.rst or the Mac-specific documentation.

Installing Chapel via Source

Mac users who don't use Homebrew or want multi-locale support will need to download Chapel and build from source.
