run hoc file w/o loading gui

Post by lb5999 » Tue Sep 20, 2011 8:33 am

Hi Ted and Michael,

I wish to use NEURON on a Linux HPC Cluster in Bristol. Neuron is installed on the cluster and I have compiled all the .mod files in my working directory. This has placed them in the x86_64 sub folder of the working directory. The cluster uses a queuing system to run jobs and I want to be able to run a hoc file, without loading NEURON's gui. i.e. purely from the command line. Any idea how I go about doing this?

Kindest regards,

Very good to hear from you, Linford.

I don't think you have to do anything special with regard to your hoc code. If indeed you do, it would amount to substituting the string
for each instance of the string
that you might encounter in the source code.
