Transfer wrapfile

synonym: transfer_executable

if true, transfer the jobsub generated command wrapper and the user executable from the submit node to the worker node.

In the past, it was assumed that the submit and worker nodes shared a bluearc (NFS) mount point and the wrapper and executable were always generated there. If there is a shared mount point (gpsn01, minos25) then setting this value to true is inefficient. If submitting offsite to an OSG site, or submitting from a host that does not have bluearc mounts, this value must be set to true for the job to run.

On Gpsn01 and Minos25, the default value can be overridden with an environment variable starting with jobsub v1_3_0

export TRANSFER_WRAPFILE=True

jobsub -g --site=UCSD yada yada yada yada yada will send wrapfile and executable to UCSD to run
