Thanks, I'm aware of that. I'm trying to get the state of a job 
currently in the queues.

Quite simply I have a script that updates a PHP page where my users can 
check their jobs without having to log in (most of them would not know 
how to do it anyway). I currently have this working on a cluster that 
uses PBS. Wth PBS "qstat -f -1 <job number>" will give you info similar 
to "qstat -j <job number>" in SGE, but it includes the current state, 
which is missing (kind of) in the SGE output. I was surprised since in 
SGE the output for all the jobs includes the state.
