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:

Notice: /usr/pubsw, /usr/sweet/bin, and /mnt/glusterfs/software have been deprecated. All have been replaced by /farmshare/software.

/farmshare/software can be accessed as follows:

more complete example

$ module avail

See for description of how to use modules 

To load latest version of matlab: module load matlab 
You can load a specific version by: module load matlab/r2012b or module load MATLAB-R2012b

$ module load StatTransfer-v12

$ module help StatTransfer-11.2
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 may need to source the module env vars for your shell.

For example, you may need to 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
