Python is a powerful, dynamic, object-oriented programming language.

Multiple versions of python are installed, and they are all accessible via the module command. To see what is available, type

module avail python

Various add-on packages such as numpy, scipy, and the MKL libraries are installed with individual versions. You can get an idea of what is available with a given version by typing

module show python/x.x.x

You may also install add-on packages in your own directories.


If you have any questions about python or about which version of python is appropriate for you, please contact User Services.
