Hi John,

no, we just use the API for monitoring issues.

Do you use the Perl API to submit jobs/request allocations, or only to query 
the state of jobs, etc.? If you submit jobs, how do you populate the hash that 
is passed as a job_desc_msg_t structure? Thanks,

In fact, we ARE using the perl API, but there are some flaws. E.g. the array_task_str of the jobinfo structure. Slurm abbreviates long
     list of array indices, like scontrol does:
yes, you can really find there three dots. In my opinion, this is ok for
     a general tool like scontrol to abbreviate the output, but it does not
     make any sense within a API.
Does anyone know, if the C-API also abbreviates things like that? Best

provide a value for, and Slurm assigns defaults to the other keys/fields? Thanks,
