New: Environment Modules on Helix and Biowulf (Helix)Date: 14 February 2013 16:02:02
From: Susan Chacko (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Environment Modules are a convenient way for users to dynamically set paths, library paths, and other required environment variables for an application. Instead of typing shell-dependent commands, for example, a user could now type: module load ThisApp to set up all environment variables for the program ThisApp, and: module unload ThisApp to unset all those environment variables. Almost all the scientific applications, libraries, and interpreters such as Perl, Python and Java on Helix & Biowulf now use modules. Details are on the application webpages. If you are not familiar with the use of modules, please see http://helix.nih.gov/Applications/modules.html for an introduction. Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
