How to set -o flags in a PSM-PSF server as defaults
Printer Systems (PRINT - NA/ATS)
Printing Systems Manager (PSM)
I'm trying to print variable data with overlays. The data come from a VM
system in which the lpr command is being executed.
In order to process the file with the correct -o flags I have to set
those somewhere in the server. It's running PSM V1.2.1, PSF/AIX 2.1 and
I tried to create a default document in which there's a parameter called
Other options, I think it's under the PSF Line Data tag, but PSM
does not allow me to use the "=" sign for example, when I type
the following: -occ=yes -occtype=z ,etc. PSM tells me that found an
invalid character in the string specified.
In the AS/400 environment I'm passing those -o flags through the out
queue defined in the AS/400 and this string is being recorded in the
Other options tag.
The quetion is, how can I set these -o flags in the server as the VM lpr
command can't pass them to the AIX machine?
Thank you in advance for your help.
I think you are trying to set this in the correct place, however you
are finding out, those are invalid characters for the GUI. To set this
manually, you'll need to use the pdset command. You should be able to
make the change this way.
pdset -c i-v-d -x "other-transform-options='-occ=yes -occtype=a'" \
These attributes are also settable as attributes in the GUI in the
default document attributes under the PSF Line Data button, called
"New Line option" and "Type of carriage control characters". See the
reference manual for a description of the correct values.
I hope this hopes.
Thank you for using WWQ&A.
