Usage on Pitzer


To configure your environment for use of xcpEngine, run the following command:  module load xcpengine. The default version will be loaded. To select a particular version, use  module load xcpengine/version. For example, use  module load xcpengine/1.2.3 to load xcpEngine 1.2.3.

xcpEngine is installed in a singularity container.  XCPENGINE_IMG environment variable contains the container image file path. So, an example usage would be

module load xcpengine
singularity run $XCPENGINE_IMG -h

For more information about singularity usages, please read OSC singularity page, and you may find useful information about xcpEngine usages with the container from here.
