=========== Version 2.9.0
         - Added support for new torque build system 2.1.0 and higher
         - Added new_rack_pbsmon.py
           Authors: Walter de Jong & Bas van der Vlies


========= 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)
