       -J, --usejobname
              use the jobname instead of the short ID as the job directory name

       -k, --keep

       job ...
              list of jobids and/or jobnames


       The  arcget  command  downloads  the  results after a job has completed on an grid enabled
       computing resource. Only the results of jobs that have finished can be downloaded. The job
       can  be  referred to either by the jobid that was returned by arcsub(1) at submission time
       or by its jobname if the job description that was submitted contained a jobname attribute.

       More than one jobid and/or jobname can be given. If several jobs were submitted  with  the
       same jobname the results of all those jobs are downloaded. If the --joblist option is used
       the list of jobs is read from a file with the specified filename. By specifying the  --all
       option, the results of all active jobs are downloaded.

       The  --cluster  option  can  be  used  to  select or reject jobs at specific clusters. See
       arcsub(1) for a discussion of the format of arguments to this option. The --status  option
       can  be  used  to  select  jobs in a specific state. These options can be repeated several

       For each job that is downloaded a subdirectory will be created in the  download  directory
       that will contain the downloaded files.

       If  the download was successful the job will be removed from the remote cluster unless the
       --keep option was specified.


              Some options can be given default values by  specifying  them  in  the  ARC  client
              configuration  file.  By using the --conffile option a different configuration file
              can be used than the default.

              This a local list of the user's active jobs. When a job is  successfully  submitted
              it  is  added  to  this  list  and when it is removed from the remote cluster it is
              removed from this list. This list is used as the list of all active jobs  when  the
              user  specifies  the  --all  option  to  the  various  NorduGrid ARC user interface
              commands. By using the --joblist option a different  file  can  be  used  than  the


              The location of the user's grid proxy file. Shouldn't be set unless the proxy is in
              a non-standard location.

              The location where ARC is installed can be  specified  by  this  variable.  If  not
              specified  the  install  location  will  be determined from the path to the command
              being executed, and if this fails a WARNING will  be  given  stating  the  location
              which will be used.

              The  location  of ARC plugins can be specified by this variable. Multiple locations
              can be specified by separating them by : (; in Windows). The  default  location  is
              $ARC_LOCATION/lib/arc (\ in Windows).
