[HTCondor-users] Poll: Is embedding submit info into the start of a script of interest? (was Re: how does one get the filename automatically in condor?)

You canât have a single file as both your submit description file and job executable, as you can with PBS or Slurm.

Hi folks,

I am wondering if our community is interested in seeing HTCondor have the ability for job submission information "embedded" at the start of a script PBS-style, like Brando shows below?   If yes, please help me to understand how/why you would find this desirable.  I do not want to miss out on an opportunity to make HTCondor easier to use.

I personally find having my  job submission directives (submit file) and my job itself (executable) kept separated into two different files to be a more clean solution.  But as Brando is not the first person to ask about the below, I cannot help but wonder if I am missing something here. 

Thanks all,

Apologies I don't think I understand your response. I usually have a submission script as job.sub that specifies the executable path. If I could instead use the actually executable script as the submission script that would be great too e.g. I usually do that with qsub as follows:
#PBS -M me@xxxxxxxxx
#PBS -m abe
#PBS -lselect=1:ncpus=112
import sys
import os

for p in sys.path:
