The ARC user interface keeps a local list of active jobs in the users home directory (see
arcsub(1)). If this file is lost, or the user wants to recreate the file on a different
computer,the arcsync command can be used to recreate the file from the information
available the specified cluster or index server.

Since the information about a job retrieved from a cluster can be slightly out of date if
the user very recently submitted or removed a job a warning is issued when this command is
run. The --force option disables this warning.

The --cluster options can be used to select or reject clusters that should be considered
in the synchronization. This options can be repeated several times. See arcsub(1) for a
discussion of the format of arguments to this option.

If the joblist is not empty when invoking synchronization the old jobs will be merged with
the new jobs, unless the --truncate option is given, in which case the joblist will first
be cleaned of old jobs and then the new jobs will be added.
