.. In ReStructured Text (ReST) indentation and spacing are very important (it is how ReST knows what to do with your
document). For ReST to understand what you intend and to render it correctly please to keep the structure of this
template. Make sure that any time you use ReST syntax (such as for ".. sidebar::" below), it needs to be preceded
and followed by white space (if you see warnings when this file is built they this is a common origin for problems).
.. We allow the template to be standalone, so that the library maintainers add it in the right place
:orphan:
.. Firstly, let's add technical info as a sidebar and allow text below to wrap around it. This list is a work in
progress, please help us improve it. We use *definition lists* of ReST_ to make this readable.

.. In the next line you have the name of how this module will be referenced in the main documentation (which you can
reference, in this case, as ":ref:`example`"). You *MUST* change the reference below from "example" to something
unique otherwise you will cause cross-referencing errors. The reference must come right before the heading for the
reference to work (so don't insert a comment between).

.. Let's add a local table of contents to help people navigate the page
.. contents:: :local:
.. Add an abstract for a *general* audience here. Write a few lines that explains the "helicopter view" of why you are
creating this module. For example, you might say that "This module is a stepping stone to incorporating XXXX effects
into YYYY process, which in turn should allow ZZZZ to be simulated. If successful, this could make it possible to
produce compound AAAA while avoiding expensive process BBBB and CCCC."
EasyBuild is used by a number of large HPC sites and integrating targeted support for ELPA ensures that those sites
use optimally built versions of ELPA.
Purpose of Module
_________________
.. Keep the helper text below around in your module by just adding ".. " in front of it, which turns it into a comment
Automate the selection of appropriate configuration flags for ELPA within EasyBuild depending on the type of CPU and available features.
Include additional options as appropriate. Build single and double precision versions of ELPA and also ensure it is linked against the expected version of the linear algebra libraries.
Background Information
______________________

EasyBuild is a software build and installation framework that allows you to manage (scientific) software on High
Performance Computing (HPC) systems in an efficient way. Full details on can be found in the
`EasyBuild documentation <https://easybuild.readthedocs.io/en/latest/>`_.
EasyBuild already had limited support for ELPA, this module allows for automated hardware specific configuration and optimisations.
Building and Testing
____________________
.. Keep the helper text below around in your module by just adding ".. " in front of it, which turns it into a comment
To build the software requires EasyBuild (see
`installation instructions for EasyBuild here <https://easybuild.readthedocs.io/en/latest/Installation.html>`_) and an
example build command would be:
::
eb ELPA-2018.11.001-intel-2019a.eb
