Re: [HTCondor-users] Possible bug using condor_submit?

Yep that a bug.   -append N=5 should behave as if N=5 was right before the (first) Queue statement.
I have used that technique myself.

It looks like in 8.4.2 this will work as a prefix, but not using -append.

[] Cat foo.submit
output     = out$(Process).txt
executable = /bin/hostname
queue $(Num:3)

[]Condor_submit  'Num=5' foo.submit
Submitting job(s).....
5 job(s) submitted to cluster 78.

Hi all,

I see that the behavior of "condor_submit" with "-append" command has changed with versions 8.4.x. According to documentation, "This command will be considered to immediately precede the queue command within the submit description file, and come after all other previous commands"  
and that was right for versions 8.2.x and previous:

[...]$ cat condor_append.submit
N = 3
output     = out$(Process).txt
executable = /bin/hostname
queue $(N)

[...]$ condor_version
$CondorVersion: 8.2.9 Aug 12 2015 BuildID: 335399 $
$CondorPlatform: x86_64_RedHat7 $

[...]$ condor_submit condor_append.submit -append 'N=5'
Submitting job(s).....
5 job(s) submitted to cluster 78.

But with version 8.4.2 the value of N is not changed:

[...]$ condor_version
$CondorVersion: 8.4.2 Nov 16 2015 BuildID: 349384 $
$CondorPlatform: x86_64_RedHat7 $

[...]$ condor_submit condor_append.submit -append 'N=5'
Submitting job(s)...
3 job(s) submitted to cluster 1223.

Is that a bug or the new syntax for queue command does not allow that?
