EUPS : A Unix Product Versioning System
A system similar to environment modules that allows for simple management of multiple versions of software on a UNIX machine, as well as their dependencies.
source /path/to/eups/bin/setups.sh # Initialize EUPS setup lsst_distrib 11.0 # Add the LSST software stack v11 to the path unsetup lsst_distrib # Remove the currently set up LSST software stack
./configure --prefix=/path/to/eups --with-eups=/path/to/managed/software/products make make install
/path/to/eups is the directory where EUPS will be installed, while
/path/to/managed/software/products is the path where software managed by
EUPS will be installed. It is recommended that the latter is not a subpath
of the former.
Details on using EUPS are given in the manual,
doc/eups.tex. To produce
a readable copy, cd doc and say:
latex eups.tex; dvips -f eups.dvi > eups.ps
