Hi folks:

   Running a long job, and it writes stuff to STDOUT which gets sent to 
$job_name.o$jobid .  End user wants to tail it, and see changes "live". 
  Basically it looks like when they tail the output file, they get the 
"cooked" (e.g. buffered) output.  Is it possible to change this on a 
per-job (in the job script) to make it raw output (e.g. flush after each 

   Worst case, we can have them redirect it to another file and tail 
that file ... I was hoping to avoid this.  Thanks.
