Software on Bridges-2

This is an initial list of software to be installed on Bridges-2 for the Early User Program.  Additional applications may be installed as requested. You can request software by using this form:

The Module package

The environment management package Module is essential for running software on most PSC systems.  Be sure to check if there is a module for the software you want to use by typing

module avail software-name

More infomation about the software and their modules is available by typing

module spider software-name

To load the environment for a software package, which defines paths and variables needed to use the software, type

module load software-name

The module help software-name command lists any additional modules that must also be loaded.  Note that in some cases the order in which these additional modules are loaded matters. See documentation on the module command for more information.
