This page describes the plethora of Scientific I/O libraries available on the system and how to access them. This is not entirely straight forward since these libraries also contain Fortran bindings which are compiler dependent. This problem is solved by using modules.
If you want to use the system compiler, i.e. gcc, g++ or gfortran, you do not need to do anything. The libraries are installed in the system path.
If you want to use modules from within a script you need to first setup your environment by adding
to your shell script.
You can get a list of available modules by running
and you can load a module using
module load NAME_OF_MODULE
First of all you will need to select a compiler you want to use. This affects mostly the Fortran compiler since (where available) the C compilers are generally produce interchangable object code. The following compilers are currently supported
The ACML brings optimised BLAS, LAPACK and FFT libraries for gcc, Intel and NAG compilers. Just load the relevant module and link against the ACML library -lacml or -lacml_mp for multi-processor systems. Being an AMD product it probably works best on computers with AMD CPUs.
Notably adder and fleet are computers with AMD CPUs. You can find out what CPU you are using by running
grep vendor /proc/cpuinfo
