========== Version 2.7.10

PBSQuery.py:
         Fixed an error. You always got all resources from eg nodes
         even when you supplied an attribute list where you only
         requested the 'state' of the node.

         Updated the inline python documentation

========= Info about the package

the latest stable pbs_python interface is available from:
          ftp://ftp.sara.nl/pub/outgoing/pbs_python.tar.gz

Pbs_python interface is a wrapper class for the OPENPBS/TORQUE C LIB
API. Now you can write utilities/extensions in Python instead of C.

The Python wrapper class is tested on:

    - Intel cluster debian GNU/LINUX woody/sarge OPENPBS 2.3.16,
      TORQUE 1.0.1p4, 1.1.0p4 and up

    - For X86_64 systems you have to compile torque/openpbs with
      the -fPIC option. Else you can not build the python module

    - Compaq Alpha cluster debian GNU/LINUX woody OPENPBS 2.3.16

    - SGI Origin 3000: Irix 6.5, OPENPBS 2.3.16

    - TRU64 system, NOTE: must rename libnet.a to libpbs_net.a and edit
      setup.py to reflect the change. There is also a system wide
      libnet.so.

    - It should run on different OSes.

In the past our Alpha cluster was redhat (6.2)  and we had to add
'-lots' to the LIBS line

========= Testing the package:

The test programs are include as a reference how to use the PBS
python module. You have to edit some test programs to reflect
your PBS installation.

pbsmon.py        - ascii xpbsmon
rack_pbsmon.py   - ascii xpbsmon by rack layout
pbsnodes-a.py    - pbsnodes -a
pbs_version.py   - print server version
set_property.py  - set some node properties
resmom_info.py   - queries the pbs_mom daemon on the nodes
logpbs.py        - Shows the usage of the PBS logging routines
new_interface.py - Example how to use PBSQuery module
PBSQuery.py      - python <install_path>/PBSQuery.py (has builtin demo)
