CSC Webinars is a series of short, on-line technical talks followed by a free-form discussion of the topic at hand or of other issues raised during the discussion. Everyone is welcome to participate!

Managing the software environment of a cluster with big user base is a complicated task. One have to take into account several, often contradictory, requirements set by different applications, compilers and libraries. For example, it is often necessary to have access to older versions of an application, or to have a library configured with different options for different applications.

Environment modules provide a convenient way to dynamically change the user's environment so that different compiler suites and application versions can be used more easily. Modules system modifies the environment variables of the user's shell so that the correct versions of executables are in the path and linker can find the correct version of needed libraries.

In this webinar we look at the basics of using the module system on Taito.

For more information on the Taito module system, please see the Taito user guide.
