Using Genozip on an HPC

Genozip requires registration prior to use, and its a violation of Genozip’s license to use Genozip without registration.

However, in some environments, interactive registration is not possible. For example, when submitting a batch job to an HPC.

In these environments, do the following:

1. Register Genozip on another computer. This creates a license file located at ~/.genozip_license on Linux and Mac and %APPDATA%\genozip\.genozip_license on Windows.

2. Copy the license file to the target computer (any directory, any filename).

3. Use the --licfile option to point genozip to the license file, for example:
genozip --licfile mydir/.genozip_license mydata.bam

Still can’t register the license? email for help.
