[ECCO] New command 'module' to manage software on ECCO

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We have installed a new tool to manage varying software environments: module. Upcoming R and Matlab upgrades will require the use of that command in your qsub jobs (point-and-click interactive sessions will be automatically updated). It's simple enough:

module load R

for whatever is the default version and

module load R/MKL/3.0.2

for a specific version (here the MKL-linked High Performance version of R, version 3.0.2).

To the extent possible, this means we will no longer uninstall old software (unless a license is no longer valid), and that you can "pin" a particular version of the software in your programs.

A help page has been put together.
