The jobid is passed as the first argument to pro/epilog scripts.

It is not currently possible to pass arbitrary arguments to submit

This is kind of ugly, but if you put your argument inside of the job
script, you could grep for it in prologue:

input=$(grep something jobs/${JOBID:0:11}.SC)
...do something with $input...
