Batch Setup Scripts
LEPP supports a compute farm using the Grid Engine batch queuing system. To properly setup ones environment, please be sure to source any project or program related setup scripts in your batch script. For example, CESR users need to source CESRDEFS or acc_vars.sh in their batch script. Likewise, CLEO users source the CLEO setup in their batch script while CMS users source the CMS setup scripts.
