Common Set of Open Source Compilers

BC Project: FY07-03
Date of Policy: 23 Oct 2008
Last Updated: 28 Aug 2020 (see Revision Log)

This policy requires a "common" version of GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) be available to users on all HPCMP allocated HPC systems. Periodically, the BC Team will review the GCC and will designate a newer version to be the common version. This version will be made available by executing module load gcc/<version> where <version> was 7.3.0 prior to this update. The common version will normally be much more recent than the "system" version (typically /usr/bin/gcc).

As of August 28, 2020, the BC common version is 9.2.0.
