Jobs enter the C(ompleted) state when they finish. Usually, they leave the
queue immediately afterwards, so you rarely see jobs in the C state when
you do a condor_q. However, you can make jobs stay in the queue when they
finish with the leave_in_queue attribute in your submit file. You specify
a boolean expression (which can be as simply as 'True') that Condor
evaluates when the job complets. If it evaluates to True, the job is left
in the queue. Condor re-evaluates the expression periodically thereafter.
