Re: [HTCondor-users] the line 'tmpdir=' was unused warning?

that looks a warning that condor_submit will produce if you have 

    tmpdir = <something>

but you don't have any statements in your submit file that refer to that variable.

transfer_output_remaps = "$(OUTFILE) = $(TMPDIR)/$(OUTFILE)"

in the same submit file should qualify as a reference,  so you should only be getting
that warning when you have the first statement but not the second.

Subject: [HTCondor-users] the line 'tmpdir=' was unused warning?

Hi all,

I'm seeing a lot of these in my .dagman.out:

> From submit: WARNING: the line `tmpdir = <someplace>' was unused by condor_submit. Is it a typo?

The only "tmpdir" I can see in my submit files is

> transfer_output_remaps = "$(OUTFILE) = $(TMPDIR)/$(OUTFILE)"

and "<someplace>" is what my dag submit file has for $(TMPDIR). The
output files seem to land in $(TMPDIR) as intended.

So, where's this warning coming from and why?
