How do I set up my account so the modules I always need are loaded automatically?

You can edit the file


adding entries at the end of this file to always load the modules you need. If you haven't made any other modifications to this file and you always wish to use R version 2.13.0, your .bashrc file would become:

# .bashrc

# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
    . /etc/bashrc

# User specific aliases and functions

module load R/2.13.0
