Application environment and library management


Type module help for all the options of the module command

  • module avail: list available modules
  • module avail app_name: list available modules for the indicated application
  • module help app_name/version: display the online help (if available) for the indicated application
  • module load app_name/version: load the environment of the indicated module
  • module unload app_name/version: unload the environment of the indicated module
  • module list: list the loaded environments
  • module purge: unload all previously loaded environments

The case of libraries

Loading a library module allows you to compile without applying -I ... or -L ... options related to the library in question in a Makefile, if the Intel compiler is used. The same Makefile can then be used on several computer centers that have set up a module for the library in question.

For the general structure of Makefiles, examples can be found in the /soft/makefiles directory.
