[slurm-users] Get original script of a job

I put this line in my job-control file (written in bash) to capture the 
original as part of the run:


The $0 gives the full path to the working copy of the script, so it 
expands to this for example:


It depends on this spooling directory being readable by all users.
This may not be the case on all systems.
If not, there might be a way to make it readable to just the owner of 
the job, you'd have to talk to the SLURM developers about that.

Also I'm not setting the jobname, so the $SLURM_JOB_NAME defaults to the 
name of the original script.
Otherwise, you should also be able to extract this from the "command" 
field output from squeue.

Note that this only works because the job is still running.
But it enables me to edit-and-submit the script in rapid-fire and 
capture the original script with each of the runs.
So I can put it in the same directory where all the other output files 
go, and have a complete description of the run conditions.

I would like to know if it will be possible to get the script that was 
used to send a job.

I know that when I send a job with scontroI can get the path and the 
name of the script used to send this job, but normally the users change 
theirs scripts and sometimes all was wrong after that, so is there any 
possibility to reproduce the script of an old job???

Thanks in advance
