Create a Project Directory

The project directory is the area where the data files for your project are stored. When creating this directory, place it on a file system which is available on the network. Somewhere in your home directory is usually a good starting point.
Note: Do not create the data directory inside the FlowTracer software installation, even if you have installed the software under your home directory. By default, the files under $VOVDIR are excluded from the graph, and your jobs will fail because they appear to have no outputs. For further information, please see Excluding Files from the Graph.

To create the project directory, execute the following:
% cd
% mkdir simple_test
% cd simple_test
