LEDA (Library of Efficient Data types and Algorithms) contains container data types like list, array, map, dictionary, priority queue, stack, queue, set, dynamic tree, etc, and basic data types such as searching and sorting algorithms, as well as numerically exact geometric algorithms, e.g. convex hull, delaunay triangulations, line segment intersection algorithms, boolean operations on polygons, Minkowski sum, and many more.

Using LEDA

To use LEDA load the module with

module load leda/6.3

which will also load the Gnu compilers (module GCC/5.4.0-2.26). You may change the compiler version by loading a different version (available versions can be found with module spider GCC.

Compiling Code

After you have loaded the module you can compile code using LEDA. A typical compile command could be (with a code copied from the LEDA demo directory):

cp $LEDAROOT/demo/numbers/Euler_demo.cpp .
g++ -o Euler_demo Euler_demo.cpp -I$LEDAROOT/incl -L$LEDAROOT -lleda -lm -lX11

The variable $LEDAROOT is provided with the module, the linked libraries may differ for your application (the example is probably a minimal list of libraries needed).

Running Jobs with LEDA Codes

Since there many people working with the HPC cluster, its important that everyone has an equal chance to do so. Therefore, every job should be processed by SLURM.

For this reason, you have to create a jobscript for your tasks.


#SBATCH --partition=carl.p
#SBATCH --ntasks=1                  
#SBATCH --mem=2G                  
#SBATCH --time=0-2:00  
#SBATCH --job-name EulerDemo              
#SBATCH --output=EulerDemo.%j.out                  
module load leda/6.3
echo 50000 | ./Euler_demo

The job script runs the Euler_demo program once the requested resources can be allocated. After the job is completed the output can be found in a file EulerDemo.<jobid>.out.


Documentation for LEDA in general can be found in the LEDA book.
