Is POWERFLOW (EXA Inc,) available on Digital plateforms?
 
I try to kwow if POWERFLOW, from EXA Inc., is available on Digital plateforms, running Alpha microprocessor and Digital Unix. I expected this information was able on www.exa.com web site; unfortunately, this site in unreachable. If someone knows the answer... Feel free to directly contact me by mail or by phone (european time).

You might get them to supply you with a Digital Unix version, however, it won't be much use to you. Exa's codes make use of special multimedia capabilities (ultra fast parallell integer computations I think) present only in SUN hardware. I recently saw a note somewhere about support also for SGI hardware. Running Powerflow on a computer without this harware support will be very slow I think.
