Or use -append, condor_submit -append "transfer_input_files = $(echo

I'm interested in other examples of -append that people use.
For example, I imagine  -append "initialdir = test"  could be useful for
switching between test and live data.

Pure CLI submission: echo queue 3 | condor_submit -a cmd=/bin/cat -a
args=/proc/self/status -a 'output=status.$(process).out'

I do this a lot to skip writing submit files.



A variation that would be nice is to have a submit file with no Queue
line, and then add it with

-append "queue 5000" or -append "queue 1". The latter being useful for

The Condor rule that says a submit file must have a queue line prevents
this scenario.

You can do it indirectly,

$ cat append.job
cmd = /bin/hostname
output = hostname.$(process).out
queue $(count)

$ condor_submit -a count=3 append.job
Submitting job(s)...
3 job(s) submitted to cluster 124.

$ condor_submit append.job
Submitting job(s).
1 job(s) submitted to cluster 125.
