Re: [HTCondor-users] Is slice [::] limited??

This looks like a bug to me.  It will parse [100::5]  and [:100:5] but not [10:100:5], so it's not a range limit
seems to be a problem parsing slices that have 3 values. 
I have created a bug ticket for this.

Subject: [HTCondor-users] Is slice [::] limited??


we have recently updated to HTCondor version 8.4.0 and I was doing
some test with the new queue features. When testing slices, I'm
getting an error if I use values greater than 99... Is there a limit
for indexes in the slice? I haven't found anything about that in the

I'm testing the following example with a rather big data.lst file:

[...]$ wc data.lst
  13644  96508 544679 data.lst

with "queue arguments from [93:99:5] data.lst" it works fine, but if I
use "queue arguments from [93:100:5] data.lst" then I get next error
when submitting:

ERROR: on Line 11 of submit file: can't open file
ERROR: Failed to parse command file (line 11).
