Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) is a method of HPC distributed programming developed by University of California - Berkeley. Programs implement the PGAS api via C or C++, and the Berkeley UPC compiler front-end will preprocess the source to be compiled by GCC and linked to the necessary libraries to make it work. PGAS is an alternative to the Message Passing Interface (MPI) generally used, although the UPC coexists well with the various MPI implementations.
My goal is to package the preprocessing tools necessary to allow PGAS to run in OpenSUSE. This requires the following steps:
The primary arcade machine emulator is MAME, and it has a very specific format for romset compression. I have previously started a project call pyros that allows the creation and update of MAME romsets. The project consists of the following tools:
* pyrex: Tool to create an executable Bash script that will take unorganized files and put them into an organized MAME romset.
