* examples/sara_nodes.py: Catch the PBSQuery error if we can not make a

   connection with the batch server and exit the program.

* Remove the debian dependency on AdvancedParser. We now have

   our own PBSAdvanceParser so it does not conflict with other SARA

Information, documentation and reporting bugs for the package:


===== Brief description =========================================

Pbs_python interface is a wrapper class for the TORQUE C LIB API. Now you can write utilities/extensions in Python instead of C.

--- Testing the package:

The test programs are include as a reference how to use the pbs python module. You have to edit some test programs to reflect your Torque installation.

pbsmon.py        - ascii xpbsmon

rack_pbsmon.py   - ascii xpbsmon by rack layout

pbsnodes-a.py    - pbsnodes -a

pbs_version.py   - print server version

set_property.py  - set some node properties

resmom_info.py   - queries the pbs_mom daemon on the nodes

logpbs.py        - Shows the usage of the PBS logging routines

new_interface.py - Example how to use PBSQuery module

PBSQuery.py      - python <install_path>/PBSQuery.py (has builtin demo)

sara_nodes.py    - We use this program to set the nodes offline/online.

                     when there are no command line arguments. It will list

                     the nodes that are down/offline. For more info see:
