Re: [Condor-users] [newbie] force job on multiple machines

Hi Nick,

It is not a password crack, I submit the string myself and this prog
makes all the comparisons it can to match it. I just wanted to code a
simple long running job to run on condor, thats it.

I am doing an under graduate project for the completion of my degree,
and its based on condor. And due to my very limited knowledge of the
above fields i would be very great full if you could point me to some
code samples.

Just a program that will engage many nodes at once, and for a long
time to study the behaviour of condor.
