ECL Compiler issue on MacOS Sierra

Comments and questions related to the Enterprise Control Language

Hi everyone,

I'm having some problems with the ECL compiler locally, basically, when I try to compile anything, it takes a really long time(1-2 minutes) to do so. I noticed this annoying problem when I was using eclipse so I decided to investigate more and I figured out that this problem is not something related to eclipse or to the eclipse plugin but maybe is something weird with the compiler on Mac.

This is my configuration:

    Mac OS 10.12.2
    OpenSSL 0.9.8zh 14 Jan 2016
    eclcc --version 6.2.6 community_6.2.6-1

This is how I'm testing it. I created a sample ECL in /tmp with just an output. So my ECL file looks like this:
Code: Select all
OUTPUT('Hello world');

Then I go to /opt/HPCCSystems/6.2.6/clienttools/bin/ and run the command time ./eclcc /tmp/hello.ecl and it takes a long time to run. This is the output I get:

LOGGING: could not open file '/opt/HPCCSystems/6.2.6/clienttools/bin/eclcc.log' for output
Error: LOGGING: could not open file '/opt/HPCCSystems/6.2.6/clienttools/bin/eclcc.log' for output

real 1m0.582s
user 0m0.010s
sys 0m0.009s

So it is taking 1 minute to compile just an output :(

I tried other client tools version but I see the same thing, I tested the versions:


A colleague at work is not using OS Sierra and he is not having any issues, this is his setup:

    OS El Capitain
    eclcc 5.4.2
    OpenSSL 1.0.2a 19 Mar 2015

Do you guys know what I'm missing? Maybe is some sort of issue with the default OpenSSL version of MacOS 10.12.2?
