CARA has now new execution modes. It can be run in batch mode (i.e. without a GUI) and execute scripts and commands. On Unix/Linux even an interactive mode is available, where Lua statements can be entered through a command line. I added these modes to allow to distribute CARA based calculations (e.g. in AutoLink?) to a grid of computers. You can now use a master scheduler to distribute CARA executables, repository files and scripts to the grid and let the number crunching be done asynchronously. The master can then poll for the availability of output files and collect the results.
