Handling batch jobs
- if you want to send a job on a computer and logout without killing the job:
:> nohup ./job
The coma to point conversion in French environment
if you are working with a configuration of Linux which has not the dot "." as a standard format for floating points data (for instance the coma "," in French), you can add the following two lines in your .bashrc file:
LC_NUMERIC=en_US export LC_NUMERIC
this will make the job without too many side effects.
