No problem Val.

The fileStaging feature was sort of half baked, however
it does work and here is the basic concept behind it.
If you have files in your CAS-PGE job that need to be
copied from controlled access storage and staged into the
job directory for the running CAS-PGE job, the fileStager
is the way to do it. You give it a FM query that defines
what files to select, and then it uses the File Manager
configured data transferer to copy the file(s) from controlled
access storage to the PGE job working dir.

Another way to accomplish this is simply in your CAS-PGE
exe block and cmd blocks is to add a cp or remote staging
command (rsync, scp, etc.) that accomplishes the same thing.
