Python

 

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 see what is available in a given version by first loading the module and then using the pip command:

module load python/x.x.x
pip freeze            ##  for python 2
pip3 freeze ## for python 3

 

Be sure to check the  help for each version to see useful information about how that version was compiled and whether there are any conflicts with other modules.  Type

module help python/x.x.x

 

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