The Chapel Parallel Programming Language


Installing Chapel using Spack

To get started with the Chapel Spack package:
  1. Install the Spack package manager on your system, if it isn't already there.

  2. To customize the Chapel installation, use the variants of the Chapel Spack package as opposed to the normal CHPL_* environment variables. Most settings described in Chapel's documentation can be set using variants of the Chapel Spack package.

  3. Install the Chapel package, specifying any variants desired. For example, to also install the chpldoc tool, use: spack install chapel+chpldoc
