Update 2: building 64-bit Numpy with Intel compilers and MKL

NOTE: these instructions are obsolete.  Please see Building NumPy on a 64-bit Red Hat Cluster with Intel MKL. In a previous post I described how I built Numpy with Intel compilers and the Math Kernel Library on a 64-bit cluster. Today I upgraded to Numpy-1.2.1 and I made a few improvements to my install process. Please …

Using Python to generate XML files for visualization in Paraview

VTK is an open-source software system for “3D computer graphics, image processing, and visualization” developed by by Kitware. VTK is the foundation of Paraview, an industrial-strength CFD visualization tool that I have found to be very useful. I generate “second generation” XML-based files from my Python code and import them into Paraview for visualization. I …

Updated: building 64-bit Numpy with Intel compilers (icc)

I had to re-build Numpy because our cluster was upgraded and the Intel compilers and libraries were moved to a different directory.  This turned out to be a half-day affair of trial-and-error.  I learned a few important things, which I will try to list here: Delete the numpy-1.0.4/build directory after every build attempt.  Doing “python …
