module load ferret
Known Issues: * The -gui option does not render correctly and may freeze your environment. * Cray versions of Ferret are statically linked and thus do not support loadable external functions. * The statically linked binary does not correctly resolve the name localhost in the DISPLAY environment variable. For bash or ksh users, the following command can be added to your .bashrc to replace localhost with the correct IP address to work around the issue:
  	eval $(echo export DISPLAY=$DISPLAY | sed 's/localhost/')
For csh or tcsh users, try the following instead:
  	eval `echo setenv DISPLAY $DISPLAY | sed 's/localhost/'`
