find_job_cmd is too hasty to fail on Windows #26

Original Launchpad bug 503903: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ipython/+bug/503903
Reported by: ellisonbg (Brian Granger).

The find_job_cmd function at line 565 of launcher.py fails on line 560 when the Windows HPC stuff is not installed.
But find_job_cmd is called at import (always), so it fails.

We should probably just return 'job' if find_cmd('job') fails.

This is only used on Windows.

def find_job_cmd():
if os.name=='nt':
return find_cmd('job')
return 'job'

Is this still an issue in trunk?


ellisonbg commented Mar 31, 2011

Yes, we should keep this around until we fix the Windows HPC support in newparallel.

Since we do have a specific WinHPC support Issue (#340), I'm closing this, since the mentioned bug is indeed fixed.
