Re: [Condor-users] DAG of DAG or Loop in DAG?

Sassy -

If I read your message correctly, it sounds like you know all of the
files and jobs in advance, the problem is really just specifying
everything.  In that case, yes, Makeflow would be able to express such
a workflow, and submit it to Condor.

Most people using Makeflow at large scale (16k files is pretty large)
first write a script to generate the workflow, then run it as a
separate step.
