       condor_run Submit a shell command-line as an HTCondor job

       condor_run [ -u universe	] [ -a submitcmd ] shell command

       condor_run  bundles  a shell command line into an HTCondor job and sub-
       mits the	job. The condor_run command waits for the HTCondor job to com-
       plete, writes the job's output to the terminal, and exits with the exit
       status of the HTCondor job. No output appears until the job completes.

       Enclose the shell command line in double	quote  marks,  so  it  may  be
       passed  to  condor_run  without modification.  condor_run will not read
       input from the terminal while the job executes. If  the	shell  command
       line  requires input, redirect the input	from a file, as	illustrated by
       the example

       % condor_run "myprog <"

       condor_run jobs rely on a shared	file system for	access to  any	neces-
       sary  input files. The current working directory	of the job must	be ac-
       cessible	to the machine within the HTCondor pool	where the job runs.

       Specialized environment variables may be	used to	 specify  requirements
       for the machine where the job may run.


	  Specifies  the architecture of the required platform.	Values will be
	  the same as the  Arch	machine	ClassAd	attribute.


	  Specifies the	operating system of the	required platform. Values will
	  be the same as the  OpSys machine ClassAd attribute.


	  Specifies  any  additional  requirements for the HTCondor job. It is
	  recommended that the value defined for  CONDOR_REQUIREMENTS  be  en-
	  closed in parenthesis.

       When  one  or more of these environment variables is specified, the job
       is submitted with:

       Requirements = $CONDOR_REQUIREMENTS && Arch == $CONDOR_ARCH && \

       Without these environment variables, the	job receives the  default  re-
       quirements expression, which requests a machine of the same platform as
       the machine on which condor_run is executed.

       All environment variables set when condor_run is	executed will  be  in-
       cluded in the environment of the	HTCondor job.

       condor_run removes the HTCondor job from	the queue and deletes its tem-
       porary files, if	condor_run is killed  before  the  HTCondor  job  com-

       -u universe

	  Submit the job under the specified universe. The default is vanilla.
	  While	any universe may be specified,	only  the  vanilla,  standard,
	  scheduler,  and  local universes result in a submit description file
	  that may work	properly.

       -a submitcmd

	  Add the specified submit command to the implied  submit  description
	  file	for  the job. To include spaces	within submitcmd , enclose the
	  submit command in double quote marks.	And, to	include	 double	 quote
	  marks	 within	submitcmd , enclose the	submit command in single quote

       condor_run may be used to compile an executable on  a  different	 plat-
       form.  As  an  example, first set the environment variables for the re-
       quired platform:

       % setenv	CONDOR_ARCH "SUN4u"
       % setenv	CONDOR_OPSYS "SOLARIS28"

       Then, use condor_run to submit the  compilation	as  in	the  following
       three examples.

       % condor_run "f77 -O -o myprog myprog.f"


       % condor_run "make"


       % condor_run "condor_compile cc -o myprog.condor	myprog.c"

       condor_run  creates the following temporary files in the	user's working
       directory. The placeholder <pid>	is replaced by the process id of  con-
       dor_run .


	  A shell script containing the	shell command line.


	  The submit description file for the job.


	  The  HTCondor	job's log file;	it is monitored	by condor_run ,	to de-
	  termine when the job exits.


	  The output of	the HTCondor job before	it is output to	the terminal.


	  Any error messages for the HTCondor job before they  are  output  to
	  the terminal.

	  condor_run  removes  these files when	the job	completes. However, if
	  condor_run fails, it is possible that	these files will remain	in the
	  user's  working  directory,  and  the	HTCondor job may remain	in the

General	Remarks
       condor_run is intended for submitting simple shell command lines	to HT-
       Condor.	It  does not provide the full functionality of condor_submit .
       Therefore, some condor_submit errors and	system	failures  may  not  be
       handled correctly.

       All  processes  specified  within the single shell command line will be
       executed	on the single machine matched with the job. HTCondor will  not
       distribute  multiple  processes	of a command line pipe across multiple

       condor_run will use the shell specified in the  SHELL environment vari-
       able,  if  one  exists.	Otherwise,  it will use	/bin/sh	to execute the
       shell command-line.

       By default, condor_run expects Perl to be installed in  /usr/bin/perl .
       If  Perl	 is installed in another path, ask the Condor administrator to
       edit the	path in	the condor_run script, or explicitly  call  Perl  from
       the command line:

       % perl path-to-condor/bin/condor_run "shell-cmd"

Exit Status
       condor_run exits	with a status value of 0 (zero)	upon complete success.
       The exit	status of condor_run will be non-zero upon failure.  The  exit
       status  in  the case of a single	error due to a system call will	be the
       error number ( errno ) of the failed call.
