Re: [HTCondor-users] append_files for stdout/err in local universe

I'm curious why the append_files directive [0], which would apparently
allow me to configure the log files to be appended instead of
overwritten, is only available in the standard universe.  Why isn't this
available in the local universe?

Because we don't control the job's file i/o in any universe except standard. (The manual doesn't explicitly state it, but append_files applies to any file the job opens, not just the files that HTCondor opens on the job's behalf, like the standard out and error logs.)
