Extension of Modules to Support Heavily Used Applications
The request to extend BC policy FY06-17 (Use of Modules for Accessing Multiple Versions of Software) to support heavily used applications and COTS packages was brought to the attention of the BC team at the User Advocacy Group (UAG) Meeting in Arlington, Virginia, August 26-27, 2008, and also, by a user who sent the following request to the BC team:
Topic: Are modules going to be used to provide common access to COTS tools such as Matlab, Tecplot, Ensight, etc? Regardless of where the package is actually installed at each site, a simple "module load matlab" would be very valuable.
Comments: I highly recommend it if it's not already in the works!
