--- move batch jobs
qmove destination job_identifier...
To move a batch job is to remove the batch job from the batch queue in
which it resides and instantiate the batch job in another batch queue.
A batch job is moved by a request to the batch server that manages the
batch job. The
utility is a user-accessible batch client that requests the movement of
one or more batch jobs.
utility shall move those batch jobs, and only those batch jobs, for
which a batch
is presented to the utility.
utility shall move batch jobs in the order in which the corresponding
are presented to the utility.

successfully processed batch
have been moved.

the precedence of internationalization variables used to determine the
values of locale categories.)
If set to a non-empty string value, override the values of all the
other internationalization variables.
Determine the locale for the interpretation of sequences of bytes of
text data as characters (for example, single-byte as opposed to
multi-byte characters in arguments).
Determine the locale that should be used to affect the format and
contents of diagnostic messages written to standard error.
Determine the login name of the user.
The standard error shall be used only for diagnostic messages.
The following exit values shall be returned:
An error occurred.
CONSEQUENCES OF ERRORS
In addition to the default behavior, the
utility shall not be required to write a diagnostic message to standard
error when the error reply received from a batch server indicates that
does not exist on the server. Whether or not the
utility waits to output the diagnostic message while attempting to
locate the job on other servers is implementation-defined.
The following sections are informative.
utility allows users to move jobs between queues.
The alternative to using the
utility---deleting the batch job and requeuing it---entails
considerably more typing.
Since the means of selecting jobs based on attributes has been
encapsulated in the
utility, the only option of the
utility concerns authorization. The
option provides the user with the convenience of changing the user
identifier under which the batch job will execute. Minimalism and
consistency have taken precedence over convenience; the
option has been deleted because the equivalent capability exists with
option of the
utility may be removed in a future version.
