How do I set my account up for running Crystal?

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.

No special setup is needed to run Crystal. It is advisable to make a symbolic link from the executables in /opt/crystal98/bin to a subdirectory that is in your PATH (eg, $HOME/bin). This saves the typing of the full directory path when calling Crystal, or the inclusion of the Crystal directory in your PATH.
