HeLmod is a software management system built on TACCs Lmod and RedHat RPMs in which:

  • apps are built, packaged, and installed using RPM
  • each app is installed under its own relocatable prefix
  • software environments are managed with Lmod
  • it's easy to manage entire software environments for multiple compiler and MPI implementations
