It looks like you've already worked through the minimum.  This is the
demo pbs_submit() perl script:

use PBS;

   {$PBS_ATTR_N => "test",
    $PBS_ATTR_l.".nodes" => "1",
    $PBS::ATTR_h => $PBS::NO_HOLD,
    $PBS::ATTR_j => $PBS::NO_JOIN,
    $PBS::ATTR_k => $PBS::NO_KEEP,
    $PBS::ATTR_p => "0",
    $PBS::ATTR_r => "TRUE"
   }, "/tmp/pbssubmit",undef,undef);
print $j||PBS::pbs_geterrmsg($c),"\n";
