Glue Linux module and tap commands

How to use the Glue Linux module and tap commands to access available software

Module and tap both set up your environment to be able to use available software.  Tap is being deprecated and will no longer be available starting with Red Hat 7.

How to use module

module avail - Display the list of available software.  Equivalent to "tap". 

module load <app name> - Loads the environment for the default version of <app name>.  Equivalent to "tap <app name>" except instructions to run the app will not be displayed.

module load <app name>/<app version> - Loads the environment for the specified version of <app name>.   Equivalent to "tap <app name with version>" except instructions to run the app will not be displayed.

module help <app name>/<app version> - Provides help which normally explains how to run the application.

module unload <app name>/<app version> - Unload the environment in case you no longer want it loaded.
