ecFlow's documentation is now on readthedocs!

This defines a variable for ecFlow job substitution in a node, equivalent to an external variable. There can be any number of variables. The variables are names inside a pair of `%'(ECF_MICRO) characters in an ecFlow script. However, remember that ecFlow is case sensitive.
The content of a variable replaces the variable name in the ecFlow script at submission time. Special characters in a definition must be placed inside single quotes if misinterpretation is to be avoided or inside double quotes variable substitution is to be carried out. Quotes are needed if defining as a list.

Submission is done via a system(3) call which executes /bin/sh.
