Everything in src/cmds/ are good examples.

Just calling pbs_connect() should be easy enough.

  int con;
  struct batch_status *status, *p;
  struct attrl *attr;

  if (con<0)
     die because of pbs_errno.

  status = pbs_statque(con, NULL, NULL, NULL);
  if (!status)
     die because of pbs_errno.

  while (p) {
    print p->name;


    while (attr)
      print attr->name,attr->value;



  if (pbs_disconnect(con))
    die because of pbs_errno.
