I was never able to figure out how to use the Perl API shipped with Slurm,
but instead have written some wrappers around some of the Slurm commands
for Perl.  My wrappers for the sacctmgr and share commands are available at
(I have similar wrappers for a few other commands, but have not polished
enough for CPAN release, but am willing to share if you contact me).
