RE: [Condor-users] Condor View scripts

Perl is free and can easily be installed as long as you update your installer if it is too old.


NTFS paths?? (never heard of them!) The only difference I am aware of that in MSDOS/MS Windows apart from physical difference in path location front-slashes are used for switches whilst in unix it is used for the path so all / to \.


Java works fine on windows and you can use apache instead of iis.


Crontab translation in windows is the Scheduled task, it can run as a user eg admin or any other. Alternatively you may use the AT command


Alternatively you can convert most scripts to a windows batch files if you are very intelligent (!)  if you don’t like to install perl (security issues) or use any other windows scripting languages or SFU.

The beauty of Perl is it's pretty darn portable. What about using ActivePerl for Windows from ActiveState to run the scripts?




Free. Might require some tweaking of the data parsing scripts so that they understand NTFS paths and such, but it really wouldn't be that hard. And the viewer is Java-based so it should run fine from an IIS server. You would have translate the crontab schedule into a Windows schedule for running the Perl scripts. All very straight forward really.

Has anyone convert the condor view scripts to some other language such as perl?


I'm wondering since I am looking at setting up Condor View stats on our cluster here, but all our servers run under windows.  I would rather not install cygwin, but possibly the MS Unix tools if that would run the current scripts for me.
