       pbs_submit - submit a pbs batch job

       #include	<pbs_error.h>
       #include	<pbs_ifl.h>

       char *pbs_submit(int connect, struct attropl *attrib,
       char *script, char *destination,	char *extend)

       Issue a batch request to	submit a new batch job.

       A  Queue	Job batch request is generated and sent	to the server over the
       connection specified by connect which is	the return value  of  pbs_con-
       nect().	 The  job will be submitted to the queue specified by destina-

       The parameter, attrib, is a list	of attropl structures which is defined
       in pbs_ifl.h as:

	   struct attrl	{
	       char   *name;
	       char   *resource;
	       char   *value;
	       struct attrl *next;
	       enum batch_op op;

       The  attrib  list is terminated by the first entry where	next is	a null

       The name	member points to a string which	is the name of the  attribute.
       The  value  member  points to a string which is the value of the	attri-
       bute.  The attribute names are defined in pbs_ifl.h:

	      #define ATTR_a "Execution_Time"
		     Defines the job's execution time.

	      #define ATTR_A "Account_Name"
		     Defines the account string.

	      #define ATTR_c "Checkpoint"
		     Defines the checkpoint interval.

	      #define ATTR_e "Error_Path"
		     Defines the path name for the standard error of the job.

	      #define ATTR_g "Group_List"
		     Defines the list of group names under which the  job  may

	      #define ATTR_h "Hold_Types"
		     Defines  the  hold	types, the only	allowable value	string
		     is	"u".

	      #define ATTR_j "Join_Paths"
		     Defines whether standard error and	 standard  output  are
		     joined (merged).

	      #define ATTR_k "Keep_Files"
		     Defines  which output of the job is kept on the execution

	      #define ATTR_l "Resource_List"
		     Defines a resource	required by the	job.

	      #define ATTR_m "Mail_Points"
		     Defines the points	at which the  server  will  send  mail
		     about the job.

	      #define ATTR_M "Mail_Users"
		     Defines  the  list	 of users who would receive mail about
		     the job.

	      #define ATTR_N "Job_Name"
		     Defines the job name.

	      #define ATTR_o "Output_Path"
		     Defines the path name for the standard output of the job.

	      #define ATTR_p "Priority"
		     Defines the priority of the job.

	      #define ATTR_r "Rerunable"
		     Defines the rerunable flag.

	      #define ATTR_S "Shell_Path_List"
		     Defines the path to the shell which  will	interpret  the
		     job script.

	      #define ATTR_t "job_array_request"
		     Requests  specific	array IDs. Makes this submission a job
		     array submit.

	      #define ATTR_u "User_List"
		     Defines the list of user names under which	 the  job  may

	      #define ATTR_v "Variable_List"
		     Defines  the  list	 of  additional	 environment variables
		     which are exported	to the job.

	      #define ATTR_depend "depend"
		     Defines the inter-job dependencies.

	      #define ATTR_stagein "stagein"
		     Defines the list of files to be staged in	prior  to  job

	      #define ATTR_stageout "stageout"
		     Defines the list of files to be staged out	after job exe-

       If an attribute is not named in the attrib array,  the  default	action
       will  be	 taken.	  It will either be assigned the default value or will
       not be passed with the job.  The	action depends on the  attribute.   If
       attrib  itself is a null	pointer, then the default action will be taken
       for each	attribute.

       Associated with an attribute of type ATTR_l (the	letter ell) is	a  re-
       source  name  indicated	by resource in the attrl structure.  All other
       attribute types should have a pointer to	a null string for resource.

       The op member is	forced to a value of SET by pbs_submit().

       The parameter, script, is the path name to the job script.  If the path
       name  is	relative, it will be expanded to the processes current working
       directory.  If script is	a null pointer or the path name	pointed	to  is
       specified as the	null string, no	script is passed with the job.

       The destination parameter specifies the destination for the job.	 It is
       specified as: [queue] If	destination is the null	string or the queue is
       not  specified,	the  destination will be the default queue at the con-
       nected server.

       The parameter, extend, is reserved for  implementation  defined	exten-

       The  return value is a character	string which is	the job_identifier as-
       signed to the job by the	server.	  The  space  for  the	job_identifier
       string  is  allocated by	pbs_submit() and should	be released via	a call
       to free() by the	user when no longer needed.

       qsub(1B)	and pbs_connect(3B)

       When the	batch request generated	by pbs_submit()	function has been com-
       pleted  successfully  by	 a  batch  server,  the	 routine will return a
       pointer to a character string which is the job identifier of  the  sub-
       mitted  batch job.  Otherwise, a	null pointer is	returned and the error
       code is set in pbs_error.
