PyCAC project creation

Once you have installed PyCAC, the application can be run from the install directory:

$ python -m pycac -j
From the launch window, select Create Input File to access the CAC job creator. A CAC input script is generated, and a local project folder containing the necessary files to run a CAC job is created. Click Next once the appropriate fields are filled, and correct any errors indicated. One can elect to set up parametric study of select commands, and choose to only build the folder on the local machine for direct runs, or submit the job to a performance computing cluster, e.g., those on NSF XSEDE.

Security concerns

The open-source and highly-vetted Python implementation of the SSH2 protocol, paramiko is used to handle secure connections with the cluster.
