Where is "Autodock" located and how do I access it?

Please note: The FAQ pages at the HPCVL website are continuously being revised. Some pages might pertain to an older configuration of the system. Please let us know if you encounter problems or inaccuracies, and we will correct the entries.

The present version of AutoDock is 3.05, which is the latest as of October 2005. According to the webpage, version 4 is available.

Before you can access AutoDock, you need to read our license agreement and sign a statement that you have done so and will abide by it. See the last section for details.

The AutoDock program is located in the directory
/opt/autodock
To access it, you have to either include this directory in your path:

export PATH='/opt/autodock/bin/sun.SunOS_5.5:'$PATH export
AUTODOCK_UTI=/opt/autodock/share export PATH=$AUTODOCK_UTI':'$PATH

or (preferably) use the usepackage facility:

use autodock305 

Of course, these settings may be included in your setup files, so you don't have to type them each time you run AutoDock.
