Hi all,

 From the following webpage,


I can find the following notes:

-o path
     Defines the path to be used for the standard output stream of the 
batch job. The path argument is of the form:


Accordingly, in my pbs script, I use the following line:

  #PBS -o out

Then, in the result folder of my job, I obtained a file named out with 
the following file permissions:

zhaohongsheng at node32:~/Castep_test> ls -la out
-rw------- 1 zhaohongsheng users 0 2011-12-13 11:32 out

As you can see, the file permission is 600 for this file.  Why does this 
happen?  I think it should be 644 for convenience.  Any hints on this 
issue?  Thanks in advance.
