This software is part of the GNU Project.

GNUbatch is based on a product first released in 1990 and worked on continually since then.

It provides Batch scheduling with "job control variables" which may be atomically tested and set to provide arbitrarily complicated job chaining and interlocking.

Interfaces are provided for shell, "curses", GTK, API for C and C++ (has been adapted for Java), web browser, Motif and also an MS Windows interface (this latter needs changing to use Free Software only).

GNUBatch 1.11 Released
     posted by toadwarble, Tue 22 Apr 2014 08:30:08 PM UTC

I have just uploaded GNUBatch 1.11

The configuration file has been updated to a more recent version.

I've fixed a couple of bugs affecting the network interactions which crept in a couple of releases ago. Sorry about that!

The reference manual has been updated in a few places.

GNUBatch 1.10 Released
     posted by toadwarble, Wed 06 Nov 2013 05:05:50 PM UTC

I've just uploaded GNUBatch 1.10

There are two main changes:

I've made the Motif part work and also support XML formats. Job submission from Motif should be better.

I've also hand-coded "getpwent" and "getgrent". Unfortunately on some systems with LDAP and/or AD emulation, running this is slow.

If the user being run can't be found in the password file, permissions etc should be those of the default user.

GNUBatch 1.9 Released
     posted by toadwarble, Tue 20 Aug 2013 06:47:05 PM UTC

I've just uploaded GNUBatch 1.9

The main difference is that there is now an option to save jobs (via "unqueue", but also from gbch-xr) in a single XML file rather than a "script" file and a "command" file. [...]

GNUBatch 1.8 Released
     posted by toadwarble, Sat 25 May 2013 11:14:32 AM UTC

I've just uploaded GNUBatch 1.8

Fixed a bug in message handling.

Moved the "home directory" config file to its own subdirectory
to avoid re-reading it twice if programs run from user home

Main change is conversion of most of the documentation to Latex
format. Old ODT format ones still available for time being and
I need to do a proper Intro manual.
