Where is HPCC Client Tools installed on Mac OS X?

Post questions specific to installation or configuration for the HPCC Systems platform

What is the default installation directory for the HPCC Client tools on Mac OS X? I downloaded and installed from this location:
http://hpccsystems.com/download/free-co ... ols?os=181

I cannot find the installation even though I successfully went through the whole installation process.

I see nothing pertinent in my /Applications folder. I used Unix "find" from a shell to search for a reg exp with [Hh][Pp][Cc]1 in it but got no results.....

I am on Mac OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion....

The installer puts everything into /opt/HPCCSystems, then a subdirectory for the version number (e.g. '3.10.8' for the current version).

I've found it useful to create a symlink in that directory (ln -s 3.10.8 current) in order to standardize the path. That would need to be updated every time you install, of course, but it simplifies a number of other things like adjusting $PATH in your login script.

Thanks, Dan....

Hm, I guess there was something wrong with my regex when doing my "find". I do see the installation in /opt.
