Installed software

The module command is for loading or listing available modules.

module [options] [module name]

To view the full list of options, enter man module in the command line. Here is a brief list of common module options:

  • avail - list the available modules

  • list - list the currently loaded modules

  • load - load the module called modulename

  • unload - unload the module called module name

  • show - display dependencies and environment variables

  • spider - print module description

For example, to display all available modules and load the Intel toolchain on Fram, enter:

module avail
module load intel/2017a

Modules may load other modules as part of its dependency. For example, loading the Intel version loads related modules to satisfy the module’s dependency. The module show command displays the other modules loaded by a module. The module spider command displays the module’s description.
