condor_cod issues commands that manage and use COD claims on machines, given proper authorization.

Instead of specifying an argument of request, release, activate, deactivate, suspend, renew, or resume, the user may invoke the condor_cod tool by appending an underscore followed by one of these arguments. As an example, the following two commands are equivalent:

condor_cod release -id "<>#1073352104#4"
condor_cod_release -id "<>#1073352104#4"

To make these extended-name commands work, hard link the extended name to the condor_cod executable. For example on a Unix machine:

ln condor_cod_request condor_cod

The request argument gives a claim ID, and the other commands (release, activate, deactivate, suspend, and resume) use the claim ID. The claim ID is given as the last line of output for a request, and the output appears of the form:

ID of new claim is: "<a.b.c.d:portnumber>#x#y"

An actual example of this line of output is

ID of new claim is: "<>#1073352104#4"

The HTCondor manual has a complete description of COD.
