       job ...
              list of jobids and/or jobnames


       The  arcclean  command removes a job from the remote cluster. Only jobs that have finished
       can be removed. 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 all those jobs are removed. If the --joblist option is used the list of jobs
       is read from a file with the specified filename.  By  specifying  the  --all  option,  all
       active jobs can be removed.

       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
       times. See arstat(1) for possible state values.

       The --force option removes the job from your local list of jobs even if the job can not be
       found  in  the  remote  information  system.  Jobs not appearing in the remote information
       system can also be removed from the local list by  specifying  the  --status  option  with
       value Undefined.


              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).
