Using WinSCP and custom commands for job submission

Part of Guide to the Local System. This version 20081114, L.S.Lowe.

WinSCP can be used to create and edit remote files, and perform custom commands on those files. For example, where the remote system is a Linux cluster, it can be used to submit jobs on that remote system. If that is all you need, then you may find that you don't often need to use a program like Putty, though the latter will be useful if you need a command session or GUI access.
