Schedules jobs enqueued by the enq command.
The qdaemon command is a background process (usually started by the startsrc command) that schedules printing jobs enqueued by the enq command.
The /etc/qconfig file should not be edited while there are active jobs in any queue. Editing includes both manual editing and use of the mkque, rmque, chque, mkquedev, rmquedev, or chquedev commands. It is recommended that all changes to the /etc/qconfig file be made using these commands. However, if manual editing is desired, first issue the enq -G command to bring the queuing system and the qdaemon to a stop after all jobs are processed. Then edit the /etc/qconfig file and restart the qdaemon with the new configuration.
