    [ The following text is in the "iso-8859-1" character set. ]
    [ Your display is set for the "ISO-8859-10" character set.  ]
    [ Some special characters may be displayed incorrectly. ]

What I would do is to just submit a job after the array job, with mail notification turned on, and have it put a hold on your array job number.

Something like;

$ qsub -t 1-1000 myarray.sh
Your job number 123 has been submitted

$ qsub -p 0 -hold_jid 123 -m b  -M my at example.com -b y /bin/true

That way you'll get email after all of the array tasks have finished.

So have I overlooked something embarassingly obvious, or is there no way
to get an email when all of the tasks in my array job has finished, as
opposed to when each task finishes?
For example, I launch a job with 300 tasks via `qsub -m e -t 1-300 ...`
I don't want 300 email, I just want an email when the last task
Is this possible?
