How do I know what's in a module?

module display gives some idea what a module does, but it doesn't tell you everything you might wish to know. For instance, other/R-3.2.1 has the raster library and other/R-3.1.0 has the rgdal library (as of now--this set up may change). Is there a web page that gives a more in-depth description of what comes with each module?

    Unfortunately, there is no webpage with in-depth information about each module.  If you need more info than "module display/show" provides, the best advice I can offer is to list the files within the "library" or other appropriate subdirectory shown by the "module display" command.


    In the case of other/R-3.1.0, listing the "library" subdir shows:

    base boot class cluster codetools compiler datasets fields foreign graphics grDevices grid KernSmooth lattice maps MASS Matrix methods mgcv ncdf nlme nnet parallel rgdal rpart sp spam spatial splines stats stats4 survival tcltk tools translations utils

    Or you can use R's built-in command:



    In the case of Python (SIVO-PyD), you can also use the command:


    I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, but I hope it's helpful.
