[parsec-users] bodytrack and x264 inputs incomplete for running

I found that when using parsecmgmt to run bodytrack and x264 program, some
input options are missing. For bodytrack, "simlarge" is missing. For x264,
"simdev" and "simlarge" are missing.

When I type: parsecmgmt -a run -c gcc-hooks -p bodytrack -i simlarge, the
output is as follows:
[PARSEC] Running 'time
[PARSEC] [---------- Beginning of output ----------]
PARSEC Benchmark Suite Version 1.0
[HOOKS] PARSEC Hooks Version 1.0
Error : Invalid number of arguments

user    0m0.004s
sys     0m0.000s
[PARSEC] [----------    End of output    ----------]
[PARSEC] Done.

I checked the bodytrack/parsec/simlarge.runconf, it writes
"run_args_simlarge="sequenceB_4 4 4 4000 5 0 ${NTHREADS}", I think it is not
consistent with other benchmarks, which is usually "run_args="something
blahblah"". I changed run_args_simlarge to run_args, it works fine. Maybe
consider fix this for the next release.
