    OpenAFS Client for Macintosh

    Details

    An AFS client is required for Macintosh systems to directly access the Dartmouth Research Data Storage system (RStor).  To obtain an account and storage allocation on RStor, see Accounts for Researchers (open to anyone at Dartmouth)

    Stata for Windows

    Step-by-Step

    This application is KeyServed and requires KeyAccess be installed on your computer, as well as a connection to the Dartmouth network each time you run Stata.

    The following software is available to researchers:

    What Is A Safe Linux Password?

    Details

    Your initial password, and subsequent resets made by a system administrator, will be a combination of your Dartmouth ID number and a random set of characters that will be emailed to you. You should change your password to one of your own choosing as soon as you are able to log in, using the passwd command at the shell prompt.

    What is Linux?

    Details

    Linux is the operating system of choice for multi-user, multitasking, networked, and high-performance computer applications. At Dartmouth, Linux runs most of the machines that provide core services, and all of the Research Computing compute servers run Linux.

    Compilers on 64-bit and 32-bit Research Computing Systems

    Details

    A 64-bit computer can handle more computations, memory, and I/O than a 32-bit computer. To take advantage of this additional power, software must be built with 64-bit compilers. The 64-bit computer can run 32-bit applications, but running them in 32-bit mode doesn't use all the expanded capabilities of the 64-bit computer. However, software built to use a 64-bit computer cannot run on a 32-bit computer.



    Programming Supported by Research Computing

    Details

    The following programming is supported by Research Computing staff:

    IDL at Dartmouth

    Details

    IDL (Interactive Data Language) is a complete computing environment for the interactive analysis and visualization of data. IDL integrates a powerful, array-oriented language with numerous mathematical analysis and graphical display techniques. Programming in IDL is a time-saving alternative to programming in FORTRAN or C. You can explore data interactively using IDL commands, then create complete applications by writing IDL programs.

    Accounts for Researchers

    Details

    A research computing account consists of an account on the central file server (AFS) and login privileges on one or more Linux computer servers  that all share the same AFS accounts for user home directories. AFS accounts are available to any member of the Dartmouth community. Users may also access the AFS file servers from their own personal workstations. Sponsored (non-DND) accounts can be created in special cases.
