Command line options

When you submit a job your program might not start until the middle of the night. You won't be there to reply to prompts so if your program requires interaction you'll have to rewrite it so that interaction isn't required. One way to do this is to arrange for your program to read options from the initial command line (in the same kind of way that the compiler can be controlled by using command line options)
