condor_config_binddynamically binds two or more Condor configuration files through the use of a new configuration file. The purpose of this tool is to allow the user to dynamically bind a local configuration file into an already created, and possible immutable, configuration file. This is particularly useful when the user wants to modify a configuration but cannot actually make any changes to the global configuration file (even to change the list of local configuration files). This program does not modify the given configuration files. Rather, it creates a new configuration file that specifies the given configuration files as local configuration files.

Condor evaluates each of the configuration files in the given command-line order (left to right). A value defined in two or more of the configuration files results in the last one evaluated defining the value. It overrides any others. To bind a new local configuration into a global configuration, specify the local configuration second within the command-line ordering.
