HPCBIOS_06-19: Common Set of Open Source Utilities¶
Sites will provide a core set of open source utilities on all allocated HPC systems and non-storage user-accessible support servers. These should be installed in the users’ default path or, provided via modulefiles.
- BC Project HPCBIOS_06–19
- Date of Policy: 2012-12-15
The current core set of open source utilities is:
|Autoconf (GNU)||Produces shell scripts to automatically configure software source code packages.|
|Automake (GNU)||Generates makefile.in files from makefile.am input files. These ini files are compliant with the GNU coding standards and build process.|
|Bison (GNU)||Converts a grammar description into a C program to parse that grammar.|
|cvs (GNU)||Provides a version control system for managing source files, and documents.|
|Subversion||Provides a version control system for managing files and directories|
|Tar (GNU)||Creates tar archives, as well as providing various other kinds of manipulation.|
|gzip (GNU)||Is a data compression utility.|
|bzip2||Block-sorting data compression/uncompression utilities. Command line options are deliberately similar to those of gzip.|
Other software utilities can be incorporated into this core set with Baseline Configuration team consensus.
