Is it possible to export environment variables from the PE start script so that they are accessible by the job.

We have an OpenMPI job and are currently using linux modules to load the environment correctly .

At the moment this is in the actual job submission script, but we would prefer to move it to the PE start up script.

I?ve had a quick play, and it doesn?t seem to matter what I do, I can?t create an environment variable of any sort in the PE start script and then access it from within the job.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
