one simple solution is to run the program with pssh instead of rccerun and with no numbers as follows:
pssh -h PSSH_HOST_FILE.10264 -t -1 -P -p 1 /shared/smeraji/./vpr iir1.map4.latren.net k4-n10.xml place.out route.out
any suggestions for rccerun?
Well, I for one didn't have any problems with arguments... How do you use them in your code? Note that you shouldn't get the arguments directly from main. Actually, if you are linking with RCCE, you shouldn't have a classical main, but something like this:
int RCCE_APP (int argc, char **argv)
There you should call
RCCE_init (&argc, &argv);
before doing anything else. Later on, you can access your arguments normally (argv, argv)...
Therefore, you shouldn't really care about those additional arguments, because they are for RCCE, not for your code. Just make sure that you do all the initialization stuff properly.
If this is a RCCE program you do not want to get rid of those arguments. They are not the cause of your seg fault. If this is not a RCCE program, you should not be using rccerun.
Note that RCCE.h just has
#define RCCE_APP main
