[slurm-users] Sbatch python question

Are you using '#!/usr/bin/env python'? That could make a difference as an example:
#!/usr/bin/env python3
#SBATCH --job-name=Python

from time import sleep

Subject: [slurm-users] Sbatch python question

First, I'm new to slurm, I'm used to PBS Pro.  But we're getting a new system, and they still configuring it.  I'm a pioneer user for this new system.  I'm trying to submit an sbatch job with a python script (not the usual bash or csh script).  This scrips works with qsub for PBS Pro; so  basically trying to convert parts of it for slurm.

%>. sbatch my_submit_script.py


Why does slurm fail my python file when I attempt to import a subcomponent of a python package?  Seems that I am forced to import the entire package.

For example, when I attempt

```from time import sleep```

the script will fail, whereas

```import time```


 Is this a slurm, python configuration issue ?  Or does slurm's python integration have a problem with importing subcomponents of a package in python ?
