check_case is a script in CIMEROOT/CIME/Tools.
$ ./check_case --help usage: check_case [-h] [-d] [-v] [-s] Script to verify that the case is ready for submission. Typical usage is simply: ./check_case You can run this before running case.submit to: - Ensure that all of the env xml files are in sync with the locked files - Create namelists (thus verifying that there will be no problems with namelist generation) - Ensure that the build is complete Running this is completely optional: these checks will be done automatically when running case.submit. However, you can run this if you want to perform these checks without actually submitting the case. options: -h, --help show this help message and exit -d, --debug Print debug information (very verbose) to file /home/runner/work/cime/cime/CIME/Tools/check_case.log -v, --verbose Add additional context (time and file) to log messages -s, --silent Print only warnings and error messages
