An example of how to run Blang as part of Nextflow execution pipeline.
Requires Java 8, UNIX, and git.
git clone https://github.com/UBC-Stat-ML/blang-mixture-tempering.git cd blang-mixture-tempering ./nextflow run compare-PT-MCMC.nf -resume
This demonstrates at the same time how useful parallel tempering is in practice using an example from the PPL for hacker book but using Blang instead of pyMC to do the analysis.
See the workflow file, which builds the Blang code, download dependencies, get the data, then runs Blang with various command line arguments, and finally creates plots in
