Ah! I missed that. Now it produces an output as expected. Unfortunately, it 
copies it in the home directory rather than the directory i specify. This is 
what i used:

#PBS -q default
#PBS -o /home/yy/tmp/tst1/dummy.job.o
#PBS -e /home/yy/tmp/tst1/dummy.job.e
#PBS -j oe
#PBS -k oe

There is no dummy.job.o in tst1 directory. Anything i did wrong?
