Using the Modules Package

The modules package is used to prepare the environment for various
applications before they are run.  Loading a module will set the
environment variables required for a program to execute properly.
Conversely, unloading a module will unset all environment variables
that had been previously set.  This functionality is ideal for
switching between different versions of the same application, keeping
differences in file paths transparent to the user.

Sourcing the Module Init Files
For some jobs, it may be necessary to source these files, as they 
may not be automatically sourced as with login shells.
Before the modules package can be used, its init file must first be

To do this using tcsh or csh, type:

   source /opt/modules/default/init/tcsh

To do this using bash, type

   source /opt/modules/default/init/bash

To do this using ksh, type:

   source /opt/modules/default/init/ksh

Once the modules init file has been sourced, the following commands
become available:

Command                     Purpose
module avail                - list all available modules
module load <pkg>           - load a module file from environment
module unload <pkg>         - unload a module file from environment
module list                 - display modules currently loaded
module switch <old> <new>   - replace module <old> with module <new>
module purge                - unload all modules (not recommended on fish)
