Lychee

lychee is one of our servers. This document provides a full description of its services. If a service is moved to another server, please just move the corresponding description to its page.

Software

/marksw

/marksw/ contains a large selection of pre-compiled software for use by the group. Each package is found in /marksw/$NAME/$VERSION/. The source code and details of how the software was built is in /marksw/$NAME/$VERSION/SOURCE. In the bash (csh) configuration file /marksw/BASHRC (/marksw/CSHRC), is a simple shell function, module, which can be used in the following ways:

  1. module avail
  2. module $NAME/$VERSION ...

The first use lists the possible $NAME/$VERSION options for the second use. The second use simply adds for each $NAME/$VERSION argument, /marksw/$NAME/$VERSION/bin and /marksw/$NAME/$VERSION/sbin to the beginning of the contents of the PATH environment variable; /marksw/$NAME/$VERSION/lib64 and /marksw/$NAME/$VERSION/lib to the beginning of the contents of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable; and /marksw/$NAME/$VERSION/man to the beginning of the contents of the MANPATH environment variable.

The module command is sourced in the global bash configuration file /etc/bashrc and in the global csh configuration file /etc/csh.local.
