From FarmShare

There is a lot of software available on the FarmShare systems. The systems run Ubuntu, so a lot of Ubuntu packages are installed.

There is also some licensed software installed:

Don't use /usr/pubsw

Maybe use /usr/sweet/bin, though we'll be installing new versions of software outside of AFS, use module avail instead.

Module Specific Help for /mnt/glusterfs/software/free/modules/tcl/modulefiles/StatTransfer-11.2:

	 ITS-maintained Stat/Transfer v11.2 (in GlusterFS)
	 use st for command-line version
	 use stattransfer for X11 GUI version


We use 'modules', a commonly used software package in HPC environments:

The 'module' command has been added to your environment, but if you have modified your environment away from the defaults, you will need to source the module env vars for your shell:

  If using sh/bash/ksh/zsh, add this to your .bashrc

     eval `tclsh /mnt/glusterfs/software/free/modules/tcl/modulecmd.tcl sh autoinit`

  If using csh/tcsh, add this to your .cshrc

     source /mnt/glusterfs/software/free/modules/tcl/init/csh

  If using perl, put this in your script

     eval `tclsh /mnt/glusterfs/software/free/modules/tcl/modulecmd.tcl perl autoinit`;

For example, try something like this at the end of your .bashrc:

if [ "${HOSTNAME:0:4}" = "corn" ]; then
  #source farmshare modules
  echo "on a corn! try module avail"
  eval `tclsh /mnt/glusterfs/software/free/modules/tcl/modulecmd.tcl sh autoinit`

Then you can do something like:

module avail
module load stata
