I think we've got this sorted out. I'll take a look at it to
make sure I don't embarass myself too much, try to document it,
and put it somewhere useful sometime soon.
If you can't wait a few days, I'll email you the two files and
that might get you started.
Torque having job arrays would make this a little easier, since
Mathworks provides a set of scripts for PBSPro that take
advantage of that functionality. Nonetheless, people here are
using what we put together.
