The following information assumes basic knowledge of how CCR uses software modules.  If you are not familiar with this, please see introductory documentation here

Watch this 30 minute intro to software modules

  1. Create a privatemodules directory in your home directory: 
    mkdir ~/privatemodules

  2. Copy an existing module file from a subdirectory in /util/academic/modulefiles/Core or /util/common/modulefiles/Core to the privatemodules directory you just created.

  3. Edit the module file. Module file syntax and commands are available here.

  4. To load your personal module you must first append your privatemodules directory to the MODULEPATH variable:

                  module use ~/privatemodules
       module load your_module/your_version

More information on creating your own modules can be found here.
