DescriptionAfter installation of an HPC application there is the chore of
creating a modulefile for the modules system (MS), so that a
user can easily load an environment for executing the application.
The mkmod utility was designed to make modulefile
generation simple. It features an auto-detection approach and
a simple, intuitive input interface for creating the content
of the modulefile, without knowing any details about the
underlying language (Lua or Tcl). By also automatically integrating
user modulefiles into the local MS, mkmod reduces
the primary barriers that keep users from employing modules
for their installed applications.
