To obviate the need for every one to install there own copy of a popular program, we have created a list of software available on each cluster HPC software.

How to use PBS

PBS is a job resource manager. PBS provides job queuing and execution services on the HPC resources here at Yale.

How to use screen

GNU screen is a terminal multiplexer. It allows you to start a shell session in a terminal that you can connect to simultaneously from multiple login sessions and persists on the server even when you’re not logged in. For example, from your laptop you can log into the cluster, start a screen session, and fire off a long-running program that prints output to the display.

How to modify your path

$PATH tells your shell where to look for binaries.
