[torqueusers] how to get qsubid and other info in epilogue and prologue scripts?

Would the qsub -n or -a options suffice?  The prolog or epilog script could
qstat -f the job ID and grep out the name and account strings.

Just a though.

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

and get this string in prologue and epilogue scripts, how can I trans this
string frome qsub command to epilogue and prologue 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...
