The arcget command downloads the results after a job has completed on
an grid enabled computing resource. Only the results of jobs that have
finished can be downloaded. The job can be referred to either by the
jobid that was returned by arcsub(1) at submission time or by its
jobname if the job description that was submitted contained a jobname
More than one jobid and/or jobname can be given. If several jobs were
submitted with the same jobname the results of all those jobs are
downloaded. If the --joblist option is used the list of jobs is read
from a file with the specified filename. By specifying the --all
option, the results of all active jobs are downloaded.
The --cluster option can be used to select or reject jobs at specific
clusters. See arcsub(1) for a discussion of the format of arguments to
this option. The --status option can be used to select jobs in a
specific state. These options can be repeated several times. See
arstat(1) for possible state values.
For each job that is downloaded a subdirectory will be created in the
download directory that will contain the downloaded files.
If the download was successful the job will be removed from the remote
cluster unless the --keep option was specified.
Some options can be given default values by specifying them in
the ARC client configuration file. By using the --conffile
option a different configuration file can be used than the
This a local list of the user's active jobs. When a job is
successfully submitted it is added to this list and when it is
removed from the remote cluster it is removed from this list.
This list is used as the list of all active jobs when the user
specifies the --all option to the various NorduGrid ARC user
interface commands. By using the --joblist option a different
file can be used than the default.

unless the proxy is in a non-standard location.
The location where ARC is installed can be specified by this
variable. If not specified the install location will be
determined from the path to the command being executed, and if
this fails a WARNING will be given stating the location which
will be used.
The location of ARC plugins can be specified by this variable.
Multiple locations can be specified by separating them by : (;
in Windows). The default location is $ARC_LOCATION/lib/arc (\ in
