       globus_gram_job_manager_rsl_validation_file - RSL Validation File
       Format The idea behind the RSL Validation file is to provide a
       mechanism for job manager scheduler interfaces to implement RSL
       extensions, while having the job manager still be able to decide
       whether a job request contains a valid RSL string.

       In addition to indicating what RSL attributes are valid, the RSL
       validation file contains information about when the RSL attribute may
       be used, it’s default value, and the format of the attribute’s value.

File Format

       The RSL validation file may contain comments. Comments are indicated in
       the file by a line beginning with the # character. Comments continue
       until end-of-line. Comments are discarded by the RSL Validation File


       # I am a comment. Ignore me.

       The RSL validition file consists of a set of ValidationRecords. Each
       ValidationRecord consists of a number of ValidationProperties
       associated with a single RSL attribute. ValidationRecords are separated
       by a blank line in the RSL validation file.

   Validation Properties
       A ValidationProperty is defined in the RSL validation file by a
       PropertyName and a PropertyValue. The syntax of a validation property
       is simply the PropertyName followed by a colon character, followed by a

       If a PropertyValue begins with a double-quote, then it may span
       multiple lines. Double-quote characters within a multiline
       PropertyValue must be escaped by a preceding backslash character. An
       unquoted PropertyValue ends at the first newline character.


       Attribute: directory
       Description: ’Specifies the path of the directory the jobmanager will
                     use as the default directory for the requested job.’

   Defined PropertyNames
       The following PropertyNames are understood by this version of the RSL
       validation file parser. Any unknown PropertyName will cause the
       ValidationProprty to be ignored by the parser.

           The name of the RSL parameter to which this record refers.

           A textual description of what the RSL parameter means.

           The default value of the RSL parameter if it is not found in the
           RSL. The default value is only used if the DefaultWhen value
           matches the current validation mode.

           A string containing whitespace-separated list of enumerated values
           which are valid for this RSL attribute. For example, for the
           ’dryrun’ parameter, this may be ’yes no’.

           Some subset of the ’when strings’ (see below), indicating when the
           RSL parameter is required for the RSL to be valid.

           Some subset of the ’when strings’ (see below) indicating when then
           RSL’s default value will be used if the RSL attribute is not
           present in the RSL.

           Some subset of the ’when strings’ (see below) indicating when then
           RSL attribute may be used.

       The set of when strings understood by the RSL validation file parser

           The RSL attribute pertains to job submission.

           The RSL attribute pertains to job manager restart.

           The RSL attribute pertains to the STDIO_UPDATE signal.
