CDE: A Tool For Creating Portable Experimental Software Packages

  • Philip Guo
Computing in Science & Engineering, vol. 14 (2012), pp. 32-35


One technical barrier to reproducible computational science is that it's hard to distribute scientific code in a form that other researchers can easily execute on their own computers. To help eliminate this barrier, the CDE tool packages all software dependencies required to rerun Linux-based computational experiments on other computers.
