nest_serial - Returns a non-distributed call of nest as a stringExamples:
Synopsis: (sli-filename) nest_serial -> (string with shell command)
(hello.sli) nest_serial -> (mpirun -mca btl self,tcp -np 1 /home/dummy/nest/bin/nest hello.sli)
If nest was compiled with MPI it may be unsafe to directly call the binary to
obtain a non-distributed version. The command nest_serial looks up the appropriate
way to call nest and returns a suitable command as a string. The algorithm is as
1. if nest is not compiled with MPI, return "nest"
2. if sli command /mpirun is defined, return this with
the -np 1 equivalent
3. issue and error with the message that nest was compiled with MPI
but no method to call nest has been specified.
This function issues an error if NEST was compiled with MPI but is not aware of
a safe method to call a non-distributed version of nest.
