	      Specifies	the pointer to the structure  with  job	 step  request
	      specification.  See  slurm.h for full details on the data	struc-
	      ture's contents.

       ctx    Job  step	 context.   Created   by   slurm_step_ctx_create,   or
	      slurm_step_ctx_create_no_alloc   used   in  subsequent  function
	      calls, and destroyed by slurm_step_ctx_destroy.

	      Identifies   the	 fields	  in   ctx   to	  be   collected    by

       data   Storage location for requested data. See data_type below.

	      Switch-specific data requested. The interpretation of this field
	      depends upon the switch plugin in	use.

	      Array of socket file descriptors to be connected to  the	initi-
	      ated  tasks.   Tasks will	be connected to	these file descriptors
	      in order of their	task id.  This socket will carry standard  in-
	      put, output and error for	the task.  jobinfo Switch-specific job
	      information as returned by slurm_step_ctx_get.

       signal Signal to	be sent	to the spawned tasks.

       slurm_jobinfo_ctx_get Get values	from a jobinfo field  as  returned  by
       slurm_step_ctx_get.  The	operation of this function is highly dependent
       upon the	switch plugin in use.

       slurm_step_ctx_create Create a job step context.	To avoid memory	 leaks
       call  slurm_step_ctx_destroy  when the use of this context is finished.
       NOTE: this function creates a slurm job step.  Call  slurm_spawn	 in  a
       timely  fashion	to  avoid  having  job	step  credentials time out. If
       slurm_spawn is not used,	explicitly cancel the job step.

       slurm_step_ctx_create_no_alloc Same as above,  only  no	allocation  is
       made. To	avoid memory leaks call	slurm_step_ctx_destroy when the	use of
       this context is finished.

       slurm_step_ctx_daemon_per_node_hack Hack	the step context to run	a sin-
       gle   process   per  node,  regardless  of  the	settings  selected  at
       slurm_step_ctx_create time.

       slurm_step_ctx_get Get values from a job	step context.  ctx_key identi-
       fies  the  fields to be gathered	from the job step context.  Subsequent
       arguments to this function are dependent	upon the value of ctx_key. See
       the CONTEXT KEYS	section	for details.

       slurm_step_ctx_params_t_init  This initializes parameters in the	struc-
       ture that you will pass to slurm_step_ctx_create().

       slurm_spawn Spawn tasks based upon a job	 step  context	and  establish
       communications  with the	tasks using the	socket file descriptors	speci-
       fied.  Note that	this function can only be called  once	for  each  job
       step  context.	Establish a new	job step context for each set of tasks
       to be spawned.

       slurm_spawn_kill	 Signal	 the  tasks  spawned  for  this	  context   by

       slurm_step_ctx_destroy	Destroy	  a   job   step  context  created  by

	      Set the argument count and values	for the	 executable.   Accepts
	      two  additional  arguments, the first of type int	and the	second
	      of type char **.

	      Have the remote process change directory to the specified	 loca-
	      tion  before  beginning  execution. Accepts one argument of type
	      char * identifying the directory's pathname. By default the  re-
	      mote  process  will  execute in the same directory pathname from
	      which it is spawned. NOTE:  This	assumes	 that  same  directory
	      pathname exists on the other nodes.

	      Sets  the	 environment  variable	count  and values for the exe-
	      cutable.	Accepts	two additional arguments, the  first  of  type
	      int and the second of type char **. By default the current envi-
	      ronment variables	are copied to started task's environment.

	      Get the job step response	message.  Accepts one additional argu-
	      ment of type job_step_create_response_msg_t **.

	      Get the step id of the created job step.	Accepts	one additional
	      argument of type uint32_t	*.

	      Get the number of	tasks per node for a given job.	  Accepts  one
	      additional  argument of type uint32_t **.	 This argument will be
	      set to point to an array with the	task counts of each node in an
	      element of the array.  See SLURM_STEP_CTX_TID below to determine
	      the task ID numbers associated with each of those	tasks.

	      Get the task ID numbers associated with the tasks	allocated to a
	      specific	node.	Accepts	two additional arguments, the first of
	      type int and the second of type uint32_t **. The first  argument
	      identifies the node number of interest (zero origin). The	second
	      argument will be set to point to an array	with the task ID  num-
	      bers of each task	allocated to the node (also zero origin).  See
	      SLURM_STEP_CTX_TASKS above to determine how many tasks are asso-
	      ciated with each node.

       For   slurm_step_ctx_create  a context is return	upon success. On error
       NULL is returned	and the	Slurm error code is set	appropriately.

       For all other functions zero is returned	upon success.  On error, -1 is
       returned, and the Slurm error code is set appropriately.

       EINVAL Invalid argument

       SLURM_PROTOCOL_VERSION_ERROR Protocol version has changed, re-link your

       ESLURM_INVALID_JOB_ID the requested job id does not exist.

       ESLURM_ALREADY_DONE the specified job has already completed and can not
       be modified.

       ESLURM_ACCESS_DENIED  the  requesting  user lacks authorization for the
       requested action	(e.g. trying to	delete or modify another user's	job).

       ESLURM_DISABLED the ability to create a job step	is currently disabled.
       This  is	 indicative  of	the job	being suspended. Retry the call	as de-

       ESLURM_INTERCONNECT_FAILURE failed to configure the node	interconnect.

       ESLURM_BAD_DIST task distribution specification is invalid.

       SLURM_PROTOCOL_SOCKET_IMPL_TIMEOUT Timeout in communicating with	 Slurm

       SEE slurm_step_launch(3)	man page for an	example	of slurm_step_ctx_cre-
       ate and slurm_step_launch in use	together.

       These functions are included in the libslurm  library,  which  must  be
       linked to your process for use (e.g. "cc	-lslurm	myprog.c").
