This depends on whether you evaluate the return code of qsub or not. This Perl command returns X if and only if the line starts with "Your job X" and X is a number. So if you check the return code of qsub then this is the only possible output and you can use "awk" instead of "perl". Otherwise, you need "perl" because it automatically returns an empty string if qsub failed.

I do not see any side effects... but neither do I see the output. I assume that sge_submit is executed on the destination/startd node - and therefore stdout simply disappears into nirvana. If this is true then the only solution is to use a log file.
