       qtask - file format of the qtask file.


       A  qtask  file defines which commands are submitted to Grid Engine for remote execution by
       qtcsh(1).  The qtask file optionally may contain qrsh(1)  command-line  parameters.  These
       parameters are passed to the qrsh(1) command being used by qtcsh to submit the commands.

       Both a cluster global qtask file defining cluster wide defaults, and a user specific qtask
       file eventually overriding and enhancing those definitions,  are  supported.  The  cluster
       global  file resides at <sge_root>/<cell/common/qtask, while the user specific file can be
       found at ~/.qtask. An exclamation mark preceding command definitions in the cluster global
       file can be used by the administrator to deny overriding of such commands by users.


       The  overall format of the qtask file is that of a tabulated list. Each line starting with
       a '#' character is a comment line. Each non-comment line defines a command to  be  started

       Definition  starts  with  the  command name that must match exactly the name as typed in a
       qtcsh(1) command-line. Pathnames are  not  allowed  in  qtask  files.  Hence  absolute  or
       relative  pathnames  in qtcsh(1) command-lines always lead to local execution, even if the
       command itself is the same as defined in the qtask file.

       The command name can be followed by an arbitrary number of qrsh(1) option arguments  which
       are passed on to qrsh(1) by qtcsh(1).

       An  exclamation  mark  prefixing  the  command  in  the cluster global qtask file prevents
       overriding by the user supplied qtask file.


       The following qtask file

              firefox -l a=sol-sparc64 -v DISPLAY=myhost:0
              grep -l h=filesurfer
              verilog -l veri_lic=1

       designates the applications firefox, grep and verilog  for  interactive  remote  execution
       through  Grid Engine. Firefox is requested to run only on Solaris64 architectures with the
       DISPLAY environment variable  set  to  'myhost:0',  grep  only  runs  on  the  host  named
       'filesurfer',  and  verilog  requests  availability  of  a verilog license in order to get
       executed remotely.
