Hardware Support Notes
The SBGrid software collection can be found installed at /programs. All software in the SBGrid collection is run from the the command line in a terminal. Do set up the shell environment the terminal to run the programs, you will need to initialize the SBGrid environment.
Bash users should initialize the SBGrid environment using :
Tcsh users should initialize the SBGrid environment with :
On initialization, you should see the SBGrid welcome message
To setup your terminal to automatically load the SBGrid environment, add the following to your configuration file:
For Bash, in ~/.bashrc, add :
if [ -f /programs/sbgrid.shrc ] ; then source /programs/sbgrid.shrc fi
For tcsh, in ~/.tcshrc or ~/.cshrc, add :
if ( -e /programs/sbgrid.cshrc ) then source /programs/sbgrid.cshrc endif
If you would prefer to load the SBGrid environment on demand and not have to type the command above, you can set an alias to a shorter command of your choosing.
For example, for bash in ~/.bashrc :
alias sbg='source /programs/sbgrid.shrc'
For tcsh in ~/.tcshrc, this would be
alias sbg 'source /programs/sbgrid.cshrc'
