In this lab you will run a program called makejob that will create a PBS script for you based on the answers you give to its questions.

You decide what the answers will be.

At the end of the questions, you’ll be put into a simple editor to optionally add  your code.

It will create a script with the same name is the job name you give it appended with .pbs.


  • The default editor makejob uses is jpico.  If you want to use a different editor,
    add the following line to your .bashrc file (to use vim for example):

    • export EDITOR=vim
