I would like to know whether the difference explained below between the
command line and option file is a normal behavour or not. I've got the
same sult with GE 6.0p1 and 5.3p4
qsub -v EXTRA_ARGS='arg1=value1 arg2=value2'  <script_file> works fine
but if you use an option file and specify
#$ -v EXTRA_ARGS='arg1=value1 arg2=value2'
you get  the following message
"Unknown option"
because the space character is not allowed
Best Regards
