[swift-users] Swift on a cluster?

This is incorrect. swift-lang.org is a completely unrelated language that happens to be called Swift. The official site for Apple’s Swift is swift.org.

C, ObjC , C++[need to write C/ObjC wrapper] libraries can be used with swift code.

The swift compiler currently works on mac & linux.

Two things. 

1. Has anyone run swift programs on a cluster?  Is it possible?  You can take that as meaning I am interested in giving it a try. Googling this turns up something super confusing: swift-lang.org
Is this the same language?  If it isn't then there is a real naming problem here. 

My interest stems from a love of the Apple world and wanting to somehow include it in some work I'm doing comparing the performance of multiple languages in parallel systems. But my goal is not to make this particular Swift parallel if it isn't already, so if I can't relatively easily make some parallel programs with it then I'll have to pass. And by relatively easily, I mean...  If I can use it with OpenMPI, OpenMP, or OpenCL (using CUDA or, if I just run it on my Mac, then OpenGL, but the clusters have CUDA) AND if I can at least compile for different platforms (CentOS Linux and Raspbian Linux) then we're in business. Googling is unhelpful because of the two languages one name problem. The CentOS systems are large heterogeneous clusters that don't presently have Swift (either one) on them at all so I might be dead in the water anyway but I might be able to get them to install it if I can argue that it'll work. The Raspberries are just my toy cluster that I have full control over. My Mac beats the crap out of them in performance lol, as it should.

2.  For fun: http://mobile.eweek.com/developer/javascript-most-popular-language-stack-overflow-report.html

"Meanwhile, the use of the Swift programming language is exploding, the survey showed. Swift grew faster than any other technology last year, the survey showed."
