Re: [HTCondor-users] Submit file macros without condor_submit?

maybe one should wrap bindings around submit.. ;-)

So it seems that you never realize how much condor_submit does for you until you don't use it anymore.

Having switched to almost exclusively using the python condor bindings, I'm trying to figure out a way to emulate using submit file macros (like "$(Process)") in the classads. When I was using the SOAP API, I created the jobs using a for loop, which allowed me to simply do a string replace for "$(Process)" and the process number from the loop. But now that I'm using the python bindings, I don't need to use a loop, which cuts the submit time down but also means I don't know the process ID for each process (and thus I can't use those macros).

I have figured out that I can get this same functionality manually by using the strcat function (e.g., ClassAd = strcat("I am process ",ProcessId)), but this solution is not acceptable considering the user interface we have. Worse case scenario, I could try doing some regex magic, but that seems inflexible at best.

Is a regex my only solution, or have I been missing something?
