Re: [Condor-users] Checking config file syntax

Is there a command to check the syntax of condor configuration files?

Some basic syntax errors can be detected with condor_config_val or any other command that reads the config file. However, this reads the config file without any knowledge of the meaning of the configuration variables, so it will not catch things like invalid values or broken ClassAd expressions. All it does is read in the config file as a sequence of key=value pairs.

There is some work going on to revamp Condor's configuration subsystem. This would make it possible to do more complete checks of the validity of the config file.
