Hi all,

I have installed the latest release of Intel Python on Jet.  This is the
version of Python we might ask NCO to install on the WCOSSes.  It has a
distribution similar in content to stock Anaconda, but is highly optimized
by Intel.  You may find that some tasks are much faster with Intel Python.
In a stroke of irony, starting Intel Python on Jet takes a few seconds
longer than /usr/bin/python because Intel Python has to be loaded over a
network.  Nonetheless, once the python process is up and running, it should
be fast.

module use /lfs3/projects/hwrf-vd/soft/modulefiles/
module load python/intel-2.7.13-emc
module load python/intel-3.6.2-emc

Here is a nice feature of Python 3.6:

sam at jet> python3.6
>>> import math
>>> print(f'{1.0+1.0} = {math.sqrt(4.)}')
2.0 = 2.0

They finally added string expansion in Python 3.6.
