Accessing BSOE UNIX Software

BSOE UNIX Software Share

UNIX users can access a number of commercial and open source software installations on any supported BSOE system, located in an NFS share that mounts at /bsoe/software.  This directory contains the files set-paths.csh and set-paths.sh, which set a number of environment variables including the shell PATH so that the tools can be run without any additional effort.  The set-paths.csh file will work for C-shells  (csh/tcsh) and set-paths.sh will prepare Bourne shells (sh/bash).

To load the environment variables, users should run "source /bsoe/software/set-paths.sh" (or set-paths.csh for C-shells).  By adding this command to a shell login script, you can ensure that you will always be able to invoke the tools upon login.  When you source the file, you will receive the following message in your shell:

"Environment variables set.

Is this file missing any PATH values or environment variables that you need for your software? Have you fixed a problem for yourself that may be beneficial to other users? Please e-mail help@soe.ucsc.edu with any change requests. Anything reasonable will be added to this script."

Please feel free to suggest changes or additions to the set-paths scripts that would be helpful.  We also welcome requests to install additional software at /bsoe/software.
