The compilation of the TELEMAC system links from Python for TELEMAC


Tools for the compilation of the TELEMAC system : compileTELEMAC.py

compile_telemac.py


Arguments available under compileTELEMAC.py are listed with compile_telemac.py –help.
They are :

  • -c CONFIGNAME (alternatively --configname=CONFIGNAME)
  • -f CONFIGFILE (alternatively --configfile=CONFIGFILE)
  • -r ROOTDIR (alternatively --rootdir=ROOTDIR)
  • -m MODULES (alternatively --modules=MODULES)
  • -b (alternatively --bypass)
  • --rescan
  • --clean
  • -j NCSIZE
  • -v (alternatively --verbose)


-c allows the user to specify one configuration in particular amongst all the configurations given in the configuration file. The system will then be compiled for that configuration only.


-f allows the user to specify a different configuration file (./configs/systel.cfg or the file given by the environment variable SYSTELCFG are considered by default). The full name of the file (i.e. including path) is then required.


-r allows the user to specify a different root directory (generally corresponding to a different version of the TELEMAC-MASCARET system).


-m allows the user to compile the system for specific modules if not all are required.


-b bypasses execution failures and try to carry compilation to the end. A final report will highlight problem areas that need addressing before the system can be used satisfactorily.


rescan performs a new scan of the sources to update all the cmdf files.


clean removes the directories created under the TELEMAC system path in relation to the configuration given in argument.


-j is used to set the number of cores used for parallel compilation


-v prints every command used during the build


It is possible to use any combination of the above.
