 The [[http://​modules.sourceforge.net/​|Modules]] package is supplied on the system to set up the users'​s environment variables to run a choice of the needed programs and versions. The most important of these variables are ''​$PATH'',​ telling the system where to find executable files such as ''​matlab''​ or ''​mpirun'',​ and ''​$LD_LIBRARY_PATH'',​ telling the system where to find shared libraries that an executable calls. ​ You can manipulate the environment variables yourself instead of calling modules, but there is no advantage in doing so. The [[http://​modules.sourceforge.net/​|Modules]] package is supplied on the system to set up the users'​s environment variables to run a choice of the needed programs and versions.
