Application versions

Leicester's DiRAC service uses CentOS 7 linux.

Generally there is a module available for each item in the list. Use the module command to see which versions of an application are available, for example for GSL:

$ module avail gsl

--------------------- /cm/shared/modulefiles ------------------
gsl/gcc/1.15 gsl/intel/1.15

Some applications have been built multiple times to suit the compilers available on the system. For example OpenMPI has been built for the GCC and Intel compilers. A module exists for each one so you can choose the most appropriate.
