Re: [Condor-users] condor_submit_dag - anything equivalent to condor_submit's -append command?

Hi Kent,

I'm interested.

Currently, I do this by creating a submit file, opening it, and inserting a line right before the "queue" directive. That seems to work well for now, but making it part of the DAG file would be a nicer.

and then submit the dag like

 condor_submit_dag -a "numpieces=16" process.dag

The condor_submit command has a nice command  "append" useful for
setting macros that a ClassAd can reference.  Does condor_dag_submit
have an equivalent command?

No, it doesn't, unfortunately.

I guess we could consider this a feature request...  If anyone else would
also like this functionality, please follow up to this thread so we can get a handle on how many people want this.
