       condor_urlfetch fetch - configuration given a URL


       condor_urlfetch [-<daemon>] urllocal-url-cache-file


       Depending  on  the command line arguments, condor_urlfetchsends the result of a query from
       the urlto both standard output and to a file  specified  by  local-url-cache-file,  or  it
       sends the contents of the file specified by local-url-cache-fileto standard output.

       condor_urlfetchis  intended  to be used as the program to run when defining configuration,
       such as in the nonfunctional example:

       LOCAL_CONFIG_FILE = $(LIBEXEC)/condor_urlfetch  -$(SUBSYSTEM) \  local.config |

       The pipe character (|) at the end of this definition of the location  of  a  configuration
       file  changes  the  use  of the definition. It causes the command listed on the right hand
       side of this  assignment  statement  to  be  invoked,  and  standard  output  becomes  the
       configuration.  The value of $(SUBSYSTEM)becomes the daemon that caused this configuration
       to be read. If $(SUBSYSTEM)evaluates to MASTER, then the URL query always occurs, and  the
       result  is  sent  to  standard output as well as written to the file specified by argument
       local-url-cache-file. When $(SUBSYSTEM)evaluates to a daemon other than MASTER,  then  the
       URL  query  only occurs if the file specified by local-url-cache-filedoes notexist. If the
       file specified by local-url-cache-filedoes exist, then the contents of this file  is  sent
       to standard output.

       Note  that  if  the  configuration  kept  at  the URL site changes, and reconfiguration is
       requested, the -<daemon>argument needs to be -MASTER. This is the only  way  to  guarantee
       that there will be a query of the changed URL contents, such that they will make their way
       into the configuration.



          The upper case name of the daemon issuing the request for the configuration output.  If
          -MASTER,  then the URL query always occurs. If a daemon other than -MASTER, for example
          STARTDor SCHEDD, then the URL query only occurs if the file defined by local-url-cache-
          filedoes not exist.

Exit Status

       condor_urlfetchwill  exit  with  a  status  value  of  0  (zero) upon success and non zero
