ROMS Executable Question

#1 Post by kscho » Wed May 02, 2012 6:02 pm

I build ROMS version 3.2 and using following option in the makefile:

ROMS_APPLICATION ?= BENCHMARK

And I found 3 executables with different sizes were built in bin directory:

cho@cy011(ROMS)% ll bin
total 14220
drwxr-xr-x 2 cho users 65 2012-05-02 11:49 ./
drwxr-xr-x 21 cho users 8192 2012-05-02 12:58 ../
-rwxr-xr-x 1 cho users 4777388 2012-05-02 11:49 oceanM*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 cho users 4872046 2011-02-14 18:54 oceanM.BENCHMARK*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 cho users 4900243 2011-02-14 18:54 oceanM.UPWELLING*

Which one should I be using if my input file is ocean_benchmark3.in from the distribution?

Thanks in advance!

It looks like these two are over a year old, from some other compilation. You want to be using the one that's just oceanM.

Ah! You are right, I forgot to check their dates. Those two were probably built by previous owner of the distribution.

Thanks for your prompt reply!
