atools was installed for you by your friendly local system
administrator, you do not have to worry about the log file, it is installed
atools and configured to do the right thing on your system.
The log file is in Python's
ConfigParser format, and contains the
defaults for the system
atools is installed on. The first
section is where these defaults are set.
[global] # batch system to use batch_system = torque # default reduce mode mode = text # default Linux shell shell = bash
The supported batch systems are:
torque: PBS torque,
moab: Adaptive Computing Moab,
sge: SUN Grid Engine,
slurm: Slurm workload manager.
The supported standard reduction modes are:
text: concatenate text files, assuming no header information,
csv: concatenate CSV files, assuming the first line contains the column definitions.
The supported shells are:
bash: Bourn again shell
sh: Bourn shell
tcsh: Tennex C shell
csh: C shell
The remaining sections of the configuration file should normally not be touched, unless to add additional reduce modes, support for shells or batch systems.
