Software Environment Setup


All software is set up using the UPS command setup (note: this is not the system command /usr/bin/setup). Some sites will activate the setup command implicitly. For others one must source a file of the same name which is located at the top of the software "products" installation area.

source /path/to/products/setup
ups  # prints help message

setup larsoft development -q prof
