To remove held jobs you could simply do:
periodic_remove = JobStatus == 5
If you wanted to be a bit fancier, here is an example to remove jobs
that have been on hold continuously for more than 2 days:
periodic_remove = (((CurrentTime - EnteredCurrentStatus) > \
(2*24*3600)) && JobStatus == 5)
So part of the magic above is knowing that JobStatus of 5 means "held";
I find the following web page helpful with these sorts of magic
hope this helps,
Any help much appreciated!
