Software supported at CHPC is often user/project driven. Software packages that we have purchased and supported in the past include:
- CHPC Unix Account Application Form
- Our main Statistics server is a Linux machine named turretarch.chpc.utah.edu
- Most software Executables reside in a common directory so you need not add them to your personal PATH variable. For specifics, go to the software name (listed above).
- For users coming in from a UNIX box, use the following commands (or something similar) to set your environment to enable window display capability on your UNIX machine. Here is an example:
- For csh or tcsh
setenv DISPLAY myhost.mydom.utah.edu:0.0
- For csh or tcsh
- For users coming in from a Windows box who wish to use SAS, you will need to use an Xwindows environment emulator (e.g., Hummingbird). Please see OSL.utah.edu or your department for license availability.

Using Windows on your desktop machine, you can ONLY access SAS (under Linux OS) by using an X-Windows client such as hummingbird (available through OSL) that allows SAS to open its many windows on your screen.
