ARCS supports Anaconda Python for both Python 2.x and Python 3.x. The default Anaconda installation comes with most of the modules researches and students need to accomplish their tasks. If additional modules are needed send an email to . If Anacaconda supports the module ARCS will install the module for you. In the event that Anaconda does not have the module available, you will need to install the module in your home directory. You do NOT need root permissions to do this.

The following is an example of installing the "stemming" module in the user home directory without root privileges using "pip":

kong-43 ~ >: pip install --user stemming

The --user switch tells the pip command to install the module in ~/.local/lib/pythonX.Y/site-packages. The directory will be created if it doesn't exist.
