It's probably not a great idea. :-) The file will not necessarily stay the same and there might not even be a file. The information is sort of already available ($PBS_O_WORKDIR, PBS_O_HOST) $0 is the spooled script which is what matters.

While the job is running, qstat -f has 'submit_args' including the path/to/script but that's not readily accessible afterward.

I guess there is no hard in making the information more readily available for completeness - say in PBS_O_ARGS

I presume the job could also be submitted from a bespoke client conforming to the API...
