Hi folks,

I've been asked by some folks locally who are developing some
pipelines if there is an option to make qsub block until the
(standard non-interactive batch) job submitted completes.

It sounds like a reasonable idea and they believe this is
already in PBSPro.

They've also asked if the exit status of the qsub in that
mode can be the exit status of the last program (as logged
as Exit_status in the Torque logs).  I can see that part
causing issues given that qsub already has its own exit
statuses..

Thoughts ?

All the best,
Chris
