How do I set my account up for running CPMD?

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.

Unlike other programs, no special setup is needed to run CPMD. However, it is a good idea to put the directory with the CPMD program into the path, i.e. set the PATHenvironment variable:

setenv PATH=/opt/cpmd/3.13/64bit:$PATH (for csh)
PATH=/opt/cpmd/3.13/64bit:$PATH; export PATH (for bash etc.)

This is for the 64 bit default version of the program. A version with 32 bit address space is not available. The program can also be set up using the usepackage utility, simply by typing

use cpmd
