If you are using a different shell you will need to talk to your lab demonstrator about the changes you need to make. This discussion addresses only the standard case, tcsh.
I have created a file which contains all the settings you need to run the mpi executables and view the man pages. It is in /usr/local/units/aca319/bin/pathadd.csh if you want to have a look at it and see what it does.
Edit your .cshrc file and add the following line at the bottom

You'll need to make these changes active. You could logout and log back in again, but what a pain when there's an easier way! Just type this:
cd ; source .cshrc
As a test, try viewing the man page for mpiCC (the MPI C++ compiler) by typing:
At the end of the course you might want to remove this line from your .cshrc file
