[Condor-users] R: Re: elf on windows

In the beginning I thought that condor somehow was able to put the elf code 
inside a sort of Java VM and so to run the code inside any machine in the 
what about code written in matlab?

I will check the POVB, if it's suitable for our hardware. I believe that 
having a VM running in background even if not doing anything is not so light.
