[GE users] Help: How to configurate the program output

If you don't care about the stderr and stdout files you can set the paths 
to /dev/null with the -e and -o options.

With what I run, the stdout and stderr are only useful if there has been 
some unusual problem, as my simulations do not normally output to these 
files.   Since the jobName, jobID, and array task number are all available 
through environmental variables, I added a few lines at the end of my job 
script that checks the .o and .e files.  If they are zero byte (meaning no 
error), they are deleted.  This also gives me a quick way to see if any 
jobs failed.

Re: [GE users] Help: How to configurate the program output

Chris, thank you very much. But I still have a problem that I can't 
When the job is finished, SGE will also create standard output and 
standard error, I don't care about them. I suppose that "-e" and "-o" just 
change the SGE standard output and standard error paths. And the tgicl 
program  will  create many files but not SGE. 

Could you tell me more details?

Thanks very much
