condor_submit_dag -sub A.sub B.sub C.sub ...
Would be very helpful. Ideally, I would like to submit everything from
condor_submit_dag (I will call it something else).
I prefer to use DAGMan because I have much better job control. It
would be nice if I can setup PARENT and CHILD relationship on a UNIX
command line like,
condor_submit_dag PARENT p1.sub p2.sub CHILD child.sub
