int pbs_rlsjob(int connect, char *job_id, char *hold_type, char *extend)


Issue a batch request to release a hold from a job.

A Release Job batch request is generated and sent to the server over the connection specified by connect which is the return value of pbs_connect().

The argument, job_id, identifies the job from which the hold is to be released, it is specified in the form: sequence_number.server

The parameter, hold_type, contains the type of hold to be released. The possible values are defined in pbs_ifl.h as:

#define USER_HOLD "u"
Available to the owner of the job, the batch operator, and the batch administrator.
#define OTHER_HOLD "o"

#define SYSTEM_HOLD "s"
Available only to the batch administrator.

If hold_type is either a null pointer or points to a null string, USER_HOLD will be released.
