--- rerun batch jobs
To rerun a batch job is to terminate the session leader of the batch
job, delete any associated checkpoint files, and return the batch job
to the batch queued state. A batch job is rerun by a request to the
batch server that manages the batch job. The
utility is a user-accessible batch client that requests the rerunning
of one or more batch jobs.
utility shall rerun those batch jobs for which a batch
is presented to the utility.
utility shall rerun batch jobs in the order in which their batch
are presented to the utility.
utility fails to process any batch
successfully, the utility shall proceed to process the remaining batch
utility shall rerun batch jobs by sending a
Rerun Job Request
to the batch server that manages each batch job.
For each successfully processed batch
utility shall have rerun the corresponding batch job at the time
the utility exits.
utility shall accept one or more operands that conform to the syntax
for a batch

Provide a default value for the internationalization variables that are
unset or null. (See the Base Definitions volume of POSIX.1-2017,
Section 8.2, Internationalization Variables
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 cause jobs in the running state to exit and
utility is a new utility, vis-a-vis existing practice, that has
been defined in this volume of POSIX.1-2017 to correct user-perceived deficiencies in the
utility may be removed in a future version.
