[Mesa-users] ./re functionality for cluster

Is there a built in functionality to allow ./re to find the most recent
photo? Just trying to find the best way to get my cluster runs done, and
one of the sysadmin suggestions was a cluster partition (aptly named
scavenger) that takes advantage of checkpointed codes to stop and restart
runs when necessary.

I see a way to do this in two steps:

1) have the submission script check if ./photos is empty,

if so run mesa as usual via ./rn, if not do ./re via my altered re script:

2)Alter re to copy the newest photo to restart_photo via

*cp $(ls -t  | head -1) restart_photo*

and comment out everything above it. However, I almost usually find when I
want to do things like this that it already exists in some form. So I'm
checking with the mailing list.

Thanks to Rob Farmer's guide for many jobs
<http://cococubed.asu.edu/mesa_market/many_jobs.html> for his ingenious
method of setting up the overall structure.
