AIPSB: Special program to run batch jobs: started by AIPSC
No adverbs in the normal sense: see SUBMIT.
Type: Special program
Use: AIPSB is a special version of AIPS which executes one or
more batch jobs from a batch queueing file. It is nearly
identical to the regular AIPS except that it cannot
perform interactive verbs (i.e. using TV, TK, tape
devices). It will run tasks as in AIPS except that it
waits for each task to finish before proceding. Any
error causes the rest of the job to be skipped and the
input file to be saved as a "failed" job (available to
verbs JOBLIST and UNQUE). AIPSB uses its own TPUT/TGET
files (not those of the interactive user), but it will
SAVE and GET files from the interactive user's area.
See HELP BATCHJOB for more details.
