Jobs Dependent On Other Jobs

In this section we are going to discuss jobs that may depend on other jobs. In order to concoct such jobs we are going to begin by writing a very, very, very simple UNIX program that reads a file in chunks of various sizes and counts number of bytes in it. Then we are going to use it, together with mkrandfile in PBS scripts.

Another reason for writing the program first is to give you an opportunity to exercise your UNIX and C programming skills some more.
