Re: [Condor-users] Perl API and current dir problem

this is provided via an environment variable: _CONDOR_SCRATCH_DIR 

I mess about with things like this within a batch script in my submissions. I'm not sure using the following in your arguments:

Arguments = -t 4 -B 2 -f 2 -D . -d bta_4.2_all %_CONDOR_SCRATCH_DIR%
Arguments = -t 4 -B 2 -f 2 -D . -d bta_4.2_all ${_CONDOR_SCRATCH_DIR}

(depending on OS flavour) will work. $ENV(FOO) won't because this is evaluated at submission with the submitters environment.

Subject: [Condor-users] Perl API and current dir problem

I'm using the Perl API to break up a large file and submit it incrementally to individual nodes.
The problem is how do I get the name of the directory that the job is going to run in on the node? 
Eg //node_1/home/condor/execute/dir_29509
I need to add this as an arg to the executable in the submit file and I can't see a way to do it. (passing it "." isn't working)

Start of my submit file looks lke this:

	Executable = /usr/bin/gmap
	Universe = vanilla
	# args to GMAP
	Arguments = -t 4 -B 2 -f 2 -D . -d bta_4.2_all :INPUT_FILE:

The '-D' param needs to point to be the full path to the current dir.

Any ideas?
