Re: [Condor-users] 'simple' c++ program

Hey Steve,

How was prog.exe compiled? If it was compiled with cygwin g++ it probably calls the Cygwin DLL (you can check with
objdump -p prog.exe | grep "DLL Name"
to see all DLLs it uses). This DLL is probably not necessarily available on the execute machine. A quick fix would be to just transfer the cygwin1.dll (or any other unavailable, but required, DLLs) with the executable.

Hi all,

I'm trying to run a simple c++ program. I'm using version 6.8.1 (I
know - I need to upgrade!) on a windows xp cluster. However, I'm
submitting my job from a cygwin prompt. It appears to run since I get
output from my echo statements in the .bat file that I use to call
the c++ program. Here's the submit:

Executable      = prog.bat
requirements = OpSys == "WINNT50" || OpSys == "WINNT51"
getenv = true
Universe        = vanilla
Error           = Output/err.$(process)
Output          = Output/out.$(process)
Log             = Output/log.$(process)

Should_Transfer_files = YES
When_To_Transfer_Output = ON_EXIT

transfer_input_files = prog.exe, R2.txt, initialnodes.txt ,
nodearccosts.txt, nodepcm.txt, S10solutionfile.txt
Arguments = 44 20 33750 12825 R2.txt

and here's prog.bat

echo running prog.exe %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
prog %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
echo done

I suspect it has something to do with prog.exe but not sure where to
look. I don't have access to the source code, but have access to the
programmer. ;-)

I've seen various other emails that are similar, e.g., running
Fortran programs, and I think I've covered the bases, but still feel
I'm missing something easy.
