1 PRINT

Queues one or more files for printing to an output queue. Requires read (R) access to the file and submit (S) access to the queue. To specify functions unique to particular print symbionts, use the /PARAMETERS qualifier. For information on parameters available for printing to PostScript printers using DECprint Supervisor software (DCPS), see the DCL Help topic PRINT_Parameter. Format PRINT filespec[,...] 2 Parameter filespec[,...] Specifies one or more files to be printed. The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters are allowed in the directory specification, file name, file type, and version number fields. The default file type is that of the preceding file. If no previous file specification contains an explicit file type, the default file type is .LIS. If you specify more than one file, separate the file specifications with either commas (,) or plus signs (+). If you specify a node name, you must use the /REMOTE qualifier. 2 Qualifiers /AFTER /AFTER=time /NOAFTER Holds the job until the specified time. The time can be specified as absolute time or a combination of absolute and delta times. If the specified time has passed, the job is queued for printing immediately. For complete information on specifying time values, see the OpenVMS User's Manual or the topic SPECIFY Date_Time in online help. /BACKUP /BACKUP /NOBACKUP Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or the /SINCE qualifier. The /BACKUP qualifier selects files according to the dates of their most recent backups. This qualifier is incompatible with the /CREATED, /EXPIRED, and /MODIFIED qualifiers, which also allow you to select files according to time attributes. If you specify none of these four time qualifiers, the default is the /CREATED qualifier. /BEFORE /BEFORE[=time] /NOBEFORE Selects only those files dated prior to the specified time. You can specify time as absolute time, as a combination of absolute and delta times, or as one of the following keywords: BOOT, LOGIN, TODAY (default), TOMORROW, or YESTERDAY. Specify one of the following qualifiers with the /BEFORE qualifier to indicate the time attribute to be used as the basis for selection: /BACKUP, /CREATED (default), /EXPIRED, or /MODIFIED. For complete information on specifying time values, see the OpenVMS User's Manual or the topic SPECIFY Date_Time in online help. /BURST /BURST[=keyword] /NOBURST Positional qualifier. Controls whether two file flag pages with a burst bar between them are printed preceding a file. If the /BURST qualifier is specified between the PRINT command and the file specifications, it can take either of the following keywords: ALL Prints the flag pages and a burst bar before each file in the job. ONE Prints the flag pages and a burst bar before the first file in the job. If you want the /BURST qualifier to apply to individual files in a multifile job, place the qualifier directly after each file that you want to have the flag pages and a burst bar. Use the /[NO]BURST qualifier to override the /DEFAULT options that have been set for the output queue you are using. The /[NO]BURST qualifier does not override the /SEPARATE options set for the queue. When you specify the /BURST qualifier for a file, the /[NO]FLAG qualifier does not add or subtract a flag page from the two flag pages that are printed preceding a file. /BY_OWNER /BY_OWNER[=uic] /NOBY_OWNER Selects only those files whose owner user identification code (UIC) matches the specified owner UIC. The default UIC is that of the current process. Specify the UIC by using standard UIC format as described in the OpenVMS Guide to System Security. /CHARACTERISTICS /CHARACTERISTICS=(characteristic[,...]) Specifies the name or number of one or more characteristics to be associated with the job. Characteristics can refer to such things as color of ink. If you specify only one characteristic, you can omit the parentheses. A characteristic's number must range from 0 to 127. To see which characteristics have been defined for your system, use the SHOW QUEUE/CHARACTERISTICS command. To see which characteristics are associated with a particular queue, use the SHOW QUEUE/FULL command. A print job can be processed on an execution queue if the job's characteristics are a subset of the queue's characteristics. However, if any of the characteristics associated with the job are not associated with the queue, the job remains pending until one or more of the following occurs: o The characteristics specified with the queue are changed to make the job's characteristics a subset of the queue's characteristics (using, for example, the SET QUEUE /CHARACTERISTICS command). o The characteristics specified with the job are changed to make the job's characteristics a subset of the queue's characteristics (using, for example, the SET ENTRY /CHARACTERISTICS command). o The job is moved to a queue on which all the job's characteristics have been specified (using, for example, the SET ENTRY/REQUEUE command). o The job is deleted (using, for example, the DELETE/ENTRY command). /CONFIRM /CONFIRM /NOCONFIRM (default) Controls whether a request is issued before each file is queued for printing to confirm that the operation should be performed on that file. The following responses are valid: YES NO QUIT TRUE FALSE Ctrl/Z 1 0 ALL <Return> You can use any combination of uppercase and lowercase letters for word responses. Word responses can be abbreviated to one or more letters (for example, T, TR, or TRU for TRUE), but these abbreviations must be unique. Affirmative answers are YES, TRUE, and 1. Negative answers include: NO, FALSE, 0, and pressing the Return key. Entering QUIT or pressing Ctrl/Z indicates that you want to stop processing the command at that point. When you respond by entering ALL, the command continues to process, but no further prompts are given. If you type a response other than one of those in the list, DCL issues an error message and redisplays the prompt. /COPIES /COPIES=n Positional qualifier. Specifies the number of copies to print. The value of the parameter n can be from 1 to 255 and defaults to 1. If you place the /COPIES qualifier after the PRINT command name, each file in the parameter list is printed the specified number of times. If you specify the /COPIES qualifier following a file specification, only that file is printed the specified number of times. /CREATED /CREATED (default) /NOCREATED Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or the /SINCE qualifier. The /CREATED qualifier selects files based on their dates of creation. This qualifier is incompatible with the /BACKUP, /EXPIRED, and /MODIFIED qualifiers, which also allow you to select files according to time attributes. If you specify none of these four time qualifiers, the default is the /CREATED qualifier. /DELETE /DELETE /NODELETE (default) Positional qualifier. Controls whether files are deleted after printing. If you place the /DELETE qualifier after the PRINT command name, all specified files are deleted. If you specify the /DELETE qualifier after a file specification, only that file is deleted after it is printed. The protection applied to the file must allow delete (D) access for the life of the job. You need to have delete access when you submit the job and delete access when the system deletes your file at the end of the job. /DEVICE /DEVICE=queue-name[:] Places the print job in the specified queue (rather than the default queue SYS$PRINT). This qualifier is synonymous with the /QUEUE qualifier, except that the /DEVICE qualifier is reserved for special use by Digital. Its usage, therefore, is not recommended. /EXCLUDE /EXCLUDE=(filespec[,...]) /NOEXCLUDE Excludes the specified files from the print operation. You can include a directory but not a device in the file specification. The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters are allowed in the file specification. However, you cannot use relative version numbers to exclude a specific version. If you specify only one file, you can omit the parentheses. /EXPIRED /EXPIRED /NOEXPIRED Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or the /SINCE qualifier. The /EXPIRED qualifier selects files according to their expiration dates. (The expiration date is set with the SET FILE/EXPIRATION_DATE command.) The /EXPIRED qualifier is incompatible with the /BACKUP, /CREATED, and /MODIFIED qualifiers, which also allow you to select files according to time attributes. If you specify none of these four time qualifiers, the default is the /CREATED qualifier. /FEED /FEED /NOFEED Positional qualifier. Controls whether form feeds are inserted into the print job when the printer reaches the bottom margin of the form in use. You can suppress this automatic form feed (without affecting any of the other carriage control functions that are in place) by using the /NOFEED qualifier. The /[NO]FEED qualifier does not affect user- formatted files and can be used to override the installation- defined defaults that have been set for the output queue you are using. /FLAG /FLAG[=keyword] /NOFLAG Positional qualifier. Controls whether a file flag page is printed preceding a file. The flag page contains the name of the user submitting the job, the job entry number, and other information about the file being printed. If the /FLAG qualifier is positioned between the PRINT command and the file specifications, it can take either of the following keywords: ALL Prints a file flag page before each file in the job. ONE Prints a file flag page before the first file in the job. If you want the /FLAG qualifier to apply to individual files in a multifile job, place the qualifier directly after each file that you want to have a flag page. Use the /[NO]FLAG qualifier to override the /DEFAULT=[NO]FLAG option that has been set for the output queue you are using. The /[NO]FLAG qualifier does not override the /SEPARATE=[NO]FLAG option set for the queue. When you specify the /BURST qualifier for a file, the /[NO]FLAG qualifier does not add or subtract a flag page from the two flag pages that are printed preceding the file. /FORM /FORM=form Specifies the name or number of the form to be associated with the print job. If you omit the /FORM qualifier, the default form for the execution queue is associated with the job. Forms have attributes such as print image width and length or paper stock, which the print symbiont associates with a job when the job is processed. To see which forms have been defined for your system, use the SHOW QUEUE/FORM command. To find out which form is mounted currently on a particular queue and which form is specified as that queue's default form, use the SHOW QUEUE/FULL command. The stock of the form associated with the job must match the stock of the form mounted on the execution queue on which you want the job to be processed. If the stocks do not match, the job remains pending until one or more of the following occurs: o A form with the same stock as the job's form is mounted on the queue (using, for example, the SET QUEUE/FORM_MOUNTED command). o A form with the same stock as the queue's mounted form is specified with the job (using, for example, the SET ENTRY/FORM command). o The job is moved to a queue on which the stock of the mounted form matches the stock of the job's form (using, for example, the SET ENTRY/REQUEUE command). o The job is deleted (using, for example, the DELETE/ENTRY command). /HEADER /HEADER /NOHEADER (default) Positional qualifier. Controls whether a heading line is printed at the top of each page. /HOLD /HOLD /NOHOLD (default) Controls whether a job is available for printing immediately. The /HOLD qualifier holds the job until released by a SET ENTRY /RELEASE or SET ENTRY/NOHOLD command. /IDENTIFY /IDENTIFY (default) /NOIDENTIFY Displays the job name, queue name, entry number, and status of the job when it is queued. /JOB_COUNT /JOB_COUNT=n Prints the job n times. The value of the parameter n can be from 1 to 255 and defaults to 1. /LOWERCASE /LOWERCASE /NOLOWERCASE (default) Indicates whether the print job must be printed on a printer that can print both lowercase and uppercase letters. The /NOLOWERCASE qualifier means that files can be printed on printers supporting only uppercase letters. If all available printers can print both uppercase and lowercase letters, you do not need to specify the /LOWERCASE qualifier. /MODIFIED /MODIFIED /NOMODIFIED Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or the /SINCE qualifier. The /MODIFIED qualifier selects files according to the dates on which they were last modified. This qualifier is incompatible with the /BACKUP, /CREATED, and /EXPIRED qualifiers, which also allow you to select files according to time attributes. If you specify none of these four time modifiers, the default is the /CREATED qualifier. /NAME /NAME=job-name Names the job. The name consists of 1 to 39 alphanumeric characters. If characters other than alphanumerics, underscores (_), or dollar signs ($) are used in the name, enclose the name in quotation marks (" "). The default is the name of the first (or only) file in the job. The job name appears in the SHOW ENTRY and SHOW QUEUE command display and is printed on the flag page for the job. /NOTE /NOTE=string Specifies a message string of up to 255 characters to appear on the flag page of the job. /NOTIFY /NOTIFY /NONOTIFY (default) Controls whether a message is broadcast to your terminal session when the job is printed or aborted. /OPERATOR /OPERATOR=string Specifies a message of up to 255 characters to be sent to the operator when the job begins to print. /PAGES /PAGES=([lowlim,]uplim) Positional qualifier. Specifies the number of pages to print for the specified job. You can use the /PAGES qualifier to print portions of long files. By default, all pages of the file are printed. The lowlim specifier refers to the first page in the group of pages that you want printed for that file. If you omit the lowlim specifier, the printing starts on the first page of the file. The uplim specifier refers to the last page of the file that you want printed. If you want to print to the end of the file, but do not know how many pages the file contains, use quotation marks (" ") as the uplim specifier. You can omit the parentheses if you are including only a specific value for the uplim specifier. For example, /PAGES=10 prints the first ten pages of the file; /PAGES=(5,10) prints pages five through 10; /PAGES=(5,"") starts printing at page 5 in the file and continues until the end of the file is reached. /PARAMETERS /PARAMETERS=(parameter[(=value[,...])] [,...]) Specifies from 1 to 8 optional parameters that are unique to a particular print symbiont. Each parameter and its values are passed as a single text string directly to the print symbiont: logical names and DCL symbols are not translated by the PRINT command. Each parameter can take from 1 to 8 values for a total of 255 characters. If you specify only one parameter or parameter value, you can omit the parentheses. Enclose parameter values containing lowercase letters or nonalphanumeric characters (such as spaces, parentheses, or commas) in quotation marks. You can specify the /PARAMETERS qualifier only once in each PRINT command. For example, in the command PRINT /PARAMETERS=(JJJ,KK) /PARAMETERS=(LL,MMM), the "JJJ" and "KK" are ignored, since the second occurrence of the /PARAMETERS qualifier supersedes the first occurrence. For information on parameters available for printing to PostScript printers using DECprint Supervisor software (DCPS), see the DCL Help topic PRINT_Parameter. /PASSALL /PASSALL /NOPASSALL (default) Positional qualifier. Specifies whether the symbiont bypasses all formatting and sends the output QIO to the driver with format suppressed. All qualifiers affecting formatting, as well as the /HEADER, /PAGES, and /SETUP qualifiers, are ignored. If the /PASSALL qualifier is placed between the PRINT command and any file specifications, all files are printed in PASSALL mode. To specify the /PASSALL qualifier for only some files in the job, place the qualifier after each file that you want printed in PASSALL mode. /PRIORITY /PRIORITY=n Requires OPER (operator) or ALTPRI (alter priority) privilege to raise the priority above the queue's maximum scheduling priority. Specifies the job-scheduling priority of the print job. The value of the parameter n can be from 0 through 255, where 0 is the lowest priority and 255 is the highest. The default value of n is the value of the system parameter DEFQUEPRI. No privilege is needed to set the priority lower than the queue's maximum scheduling priority. /QUEUE /QUEUE=queue-name[:] Queues the job to the specified output queue. The default queue is SYS$PRINT. This qualifier is synonymous with the /DEVICE qualifier. /REMOTE Queues the job to SYS$PRINT on the remote node specified in the file specification; the file must exist on the remote node. When you use the /REMOTE qualifier, you must include the node name in the file specification. You can specify only the following qualifiers with the /REMOTE qualifier: /BACKUP /BEFORE /BY_OWNER /CONFIRM /CREATED /EXCLUDE /EXPIRED /MODIFIED /SINCE. Note that, unlike the printing on the local node, multiple files queued by a single PRINT/REMOTE command are considered separate jobs. /RESTART /RESTART (default) /NORESTART Indicates whether a job restarts after a system failure or after a STOP/QUEUE/REQUEUE command. /RETAIN /RETAIN=option Specifies the circumstances under which you want your jobs to be retained in a queue. When a job is retained in the queue, you can issue the SHOW QUEUE command after the job completes to see the status of the job. Without job retention, no record of a job is left in a queue after a job completes. Use the following options to specify job retention: o ALWAYS--Holds the job in the queue regardless of the job's completion status. o DEFAULT--Holds the job in the queue as specified by the queue's retention policy. o ERROR--Holds the job in the queue only if the job completes unsuccessfully. o UNTIL=time-value--Holds the job in the queue for the specified length of time, regardless of the job's completion status. NOTE You cannot specify a /NORETAIN qualifier with the PRINT command (as system managers can with the commands INITIALIZE /QUEUE, START/QUEUE, and SET QUEUE). However, you can specify /RETAIN=DEFAULT with the PRINT command. The default option holds the job in the queue as specified by the queue's retention policy. If the system manager has not specified retention for the queue, the job is not retained. How Job Retention is Determined Although you can specify job retention options for your own jobs, the job retention option you specify may be overridden by the job retention option of the queue on which your job executed. If you submit or print a job to a generic queue, the generic queue's job retention setting may also override the job retention option you specify. This section describes how job retention is determined. An execution queue's job retention setting takes precedence over a generic queue's job retention setting. However, if the job's completion status does not match the job retention setting (if any) on the execution queue, then the generic queue's job retention setting attempts to control job retention. If the job's completion status does not match the job retention setting (if any) on the generic queue, then the user-specified job retention setting is used. Jobs submitted directly to execution queues are not affected by job retention settings on generic queues. If the execution queue's retention setting applies, the job is retained on the execution queue. Likewise, if the generic queue's retention setting applies, the job is retained on the generic queue. If the user-specified setting applies, the job is retained in the queue to which it was submitted. The following example illustrates how the queue manager determines job retention: Suppose you submit a job to a generic queue and specify /RETAIN=ALWAYS, and the job completes successfully. First, the queue manager compares the job's completion status to the execution queue's retention setting. Suppose the queue is set with /RETAIN=ERROR (retains only jobs that complete unsuccessfully). The job is not retained in the execution queue because the error condition was not met. The queue manager then compares the job's completion status to the generic queue's retention setting. Suppose the generic queue has no retention setting. The queue manager's comparison again fails to retain the job. Finally, the queue manager compares the job's completion status to the retention setting you specified for the job. This comparison reveals that the job should be retained. Because the user-specified setting leads the queue manager to retain the job, the job is held in the queue to which the job was submitted-in this case, the generic queue. For more information on types of queues, see the INITIALIZE/QUEUE command. For more information on setting retention options for queues, see the INITIALIZE/QUEUE, START/QUEUE, or SET QUEUE command. Timed Retention Timed retention, which you specify using the UNTIL=time-value option, allows you to retain a job in the queue only as long as you need it. This eliminates the need to delete the job from the queue later. For example, the following command retains the print job MYFILE in the queue until 7:31 on December 14, when the job will automatically be deleted from the queue. $ PRINT/RETAIN=UNTIL=14-DEC-1994:07:31:0.0 MYFILE.DAT However, depending on the queue's job retention policy, the job might be retained indefinitely. The job retention policy set on the queue takes precedence over the user-specified job retention setting. Because system managers cannot specify timed job retention for a queue, any jobs retained as a result of a queue's setting are retained indefinitely. If you specify the /RETAIN=UNTIL=time-value option, you must supply a time value. The time value is first interpreted as a delta time, then as a combination time, and finally as absolute time. If you specify a delta time, the delta begins when the job completes. For example, if you specify PRINT /RETAIN=UNTIL="+3:00", the job will be retained for three hours after the job completes. For information on specifying time values, see the OpenVMS User's Manual. /SETUP /SETUP=module[,...] Extracts the specified modules from the device control library (containing escape sequence modules for programmable printers) and copies the modules to the printer before a file is printed. By default, no device control modules are copied. Note that the module names are not checked for validity until the time that the file is actually printed. Therefore, PRINT /SETUP is susceptible to typing errors and other mistakes. It is recommended only for experimental setups. For production setups, see DEFINE/FORM/SETUP. /SINCE /SINCE[=time] /NOSINCE Selects only those files dated after the specified time. You can specify time as absolute time, as a combination of absolute and delta times, or as one of the following keywords: BOOT, LOGIN, TODAY (default), TOMORROW, or YESTERDAY. Specify one of the following qualifiers with the /SINCE qualifier to indicate the time attribute to be used as the basis for selection: /BACKUP, /CREATED (default), /EXPIRED, or /MODIFIED. For complete information on specifying time values, see the OpenVMS User's Manual or the topic SPECIFY Date_Time in online help. /SPACE /SPACE /NOSPACE (default) Positional qualifier. Controls whether print job output is double-spaced. The default is single-spaced output. /TRAILER /TRAILER[=keyword] /NOTRAILER Positional qualifier. Controls whether a file trailer page is printed at the end of a file. The trailer page displays the job entry number as well as information about the user submitting the job and the files being printed. If the /TRAILER qualifier is positioned between the PRINT command and the file specifications, it can take either of the following keywords: ALL Prints a file trailer page after each file in the job. ONE Prints a file trailer page after the last file in the job. If you want the /TRAILER qualifier to apply to individual files in a multifile job, place the qualifier directly after each file that you want to have a trailer page. Use the /[NO]TRAILER qualifier to override the /DEFAULT=[NO]TRAILER option that has been set for the output queue you are using. The /[NO]TRAILER qualifier does not override the /SEPARATE=[NO]TRAILER option set for the queue. /USER /USER=username Requires CMKRNL (change mode to kernel) privilege and read (R) and write (W) access to the user authorization file (UAF). Allows you to print a job on behalf of another user. The print job runs exactly as if that user had submitted it. The print job runs under that user's user name and user identification code (UIC), and accounting information is logged to that user's account. By default, the user identification comes from the requesting process. The user name qualifier value can be any user name that is valid on your system. The name must be 1 to 12 alphanumeric characters. 2 Examples 1.$ PRINT/QUEUE=LPB0/COPIES=10/AFTER=20 RESUME Job RESUME (queue LPB0, entry 239) holding until 14-DEC-1994 20:00 The PRINT command in this example queues 10 copies of the file RESUME.LIS to printer LPB0, but requests that the copies not be printed until after 8:00 P.M. 2.$ PRINT THETA.TXT + BETA/FLAG + GAMMA/FLAG + *.LIS/FLAG Job THETA (queue SYS$PRINT, entry 237) pending The PRINT command in this example submits the files THETA.TXT, BETA.TXT, GAMMA.TXT, and the highest versions of all files with the file type .LIS as a single print job. Flag pages separate the individual files. Notice that the file type for BETA and GAMMA is .TXT, the file type of the first file in the list. 3.$ PRINT/LOWERCASE THETA.TXT/COPIES=2, - _$BETA.DOC/COPIES=3 Job THETA (queue SYS$PRINT, entry 240) pending The print job queued by the PRINT command in this example consists of two copies of THETA.TXT followed by three copies of BETA.DOC. This job must be printed on a printer that can print lowercase letters. If no such printer is available, the job waits in the queue. 4.$ PRINT/JOB_COUNT=3 THETA.TXT,BETA/NOIDENTIFY The PRINT command in this example concatenates the files THETA.TXT and BETA.TXT into a single print job and prints three copies of the job. The /NOIDENTIFY qualifier requests that the job entry number and queue name not be displayed. 5.$ COPY REPORT.MEM NODE3:: $ PRINT/REMOTE NODE3::REPORT.MEM In this example, the two commands are entered at a node other than NODE3. The COPY command copies the file REPORT.MEM from the current node to the NODE3 node. The PRINT command queues the file REPORT.MEM located on the NODE3 node for printing at the NODE3 node. The job entry number and queue name are not displayed when the /REMOTE qualifier is used. 6.$ PRINT/HOLD MASTER.DOC Job MASTER (queue SYS$PRINT, entry 540) holding . . . $ SET ENTRY 540/RELEASE The PRINT command in this example queues a copy of the file MASTER.DOC to the default printer in a hold status. Later, the SET ENTRY command releases the hold status on the file and makes it available for printing. 7.$ PRINT TEST.TXT Job TEST.TXT (queue SYS$PRINT, entry 867) started on LPA0 $ SHOW ENTRY '$ENTRY' Entry Jobname Username Blocks Status ----- ------- -------- ------ ------ 867 TEST.TXT Gibbons 135 Printing Submitted 10-DEC-1994 11:07 /FORM=DEFAULT /PRIORITY=100 File: $5$DUA174:[GIBBONS]TEST.TXT;3 The PRINT command in this system example queues a copy of the file TEST.TXT to the default printer. It also creates the local symbol $ENTRY to store the job entry number. The SHOW ENTRY command requests a display of the entry using the symbol $ENTRY to identify it. 8.$ PRINT/RETAIN=UNTIL=1 MYFILE.DAT . . . $ SHOW QUEUE DOC$LN03 Server queue DOC$LN03, stopped, on NEWTON::, mounted form DEFAULT Entry Jobname Username Blocks Status ----- ------- -------- ------ ------ 436 MYFILE HERSHEY 8 Retained until 11-DEC-1994 16:56 %JBC-F-JOBABORT, job aborted during execution Completed 11-DEC-1994 15:56 on queue DOC$LN03 The SHOW QUEUE display in this system example includes the date and time at which a retained job completed and the queue on which it executed. The user set job retention to be one hour after job completion. Depending on the queue's job retention policy, the job might be deleted from the queue at 16:56. 9. PRINT /PARAMETERS=AAA=123 This command passes the parameter "AAA=123" to the print symbiont. The interpretation of the parameter is dependent on the symbiont. 10$ PRINT /PARAMETERS=(ddd,"e,(F=(3,4),g),h)",iii) This command passes three parameters, "DDD", "e,(F=(3,4),g),h)", and "III" to the print symbiont. The use of the quotes around the second parameter allow the use of nested parentheses, commas, and the preservation of alphabetic case. This parameter value is perfectly acceptable to the PRINT command, even though it is apt to subsequently be rejected by the print symbiont. 11.PRINT /PARAMETERS=("N,O,P,Q,R,S,T",U,V) This command passes three parameters, "N,O,P,Q,R,S,T", "U", and "V", to the print symbiont. Depending on the parsing capabilities of the symbiont and the length of the parameters (since each parameter is limited to 255 characters), this may be a workaround to the limitation of eight parameters.

1 PRINT_Parameter

The PRINT command accepts the /PARAMETERS qualifier to specify functions unique to printing on PostScript* printers with DECprint Supervisor software. Certain parameters are available only if the DCPS-PLUS license has been installed on your system. Format: $ PRINT/PARAMETERS=(parameter[,...]) file-spec If you specify only one parameter, you can omit the parentheses. If you specify two or more parameters, separate them with commas and enclose the set in parentheses. If you specify a parameter that contains special characters or delimiters, enclose the parameter in double quotation marks (" "). If the value associated with a parameter contains delimiters, such as commas or parentheses, enclose the value (or the entire parameter) in double quotation marks. The following examples are valid notations: $ PRINT/PARAMETERS=(PAGE_SIZE=A,SHEET_SIZE=A4) file-spec $ PRINT/PARAMETERS=(PAGE_LIMIT="(1,4)",MESSAGES="(PRINT,KEEP)") file-spec * PostScript is a trademark of Adobe Systems Incorporated, which may be registered in certain jurisdictions. 2 DATA_TYPE DATA_TYPE=data-type-name Specifies which translator, if any, the print symbiont invokes. Data-type-name can be ANSI, ASCII (same as ANSI), AUTOMATIC, DDIF (bitonal image subset only), PCL*, REGIS, TEK4014, POSTSCRIPT, or PROPRINTER*. If the data-type-name is POSTSCRIPT, no translator is invoked. When the DCPS-PLUS license has not been installed, you can use only ANSI, ASCII, and PostScript data-type-names. Use of the other data-type-names requires the installation of the DCPS-PLUS license. The REGIS and TEKTRONIX* data-type-names are not available with the OpenVMS Alpha version of the DECprint Supervisor software. If the DCPS-PLUS license is installed, and you do not specify DATA_TYPE, it defaults to AUTOMATIC. With AUTOMATIC, the data type of the file is determined by the file extension and the contents of the file. If the DCPS-PLUS license is not installed, the data type defaults to ANSI. * PCL is a trademark of Hewlett-Packard Company. Proprinter is a registered trademark of International Business Machines Corporation. Tektronix is a registered trademark of Tektronix, Inc. 3 AUTOMATIC[=initial-data-type] Specifies the automatic detection of the file's data type. The initial-data-type specifies the data type at the start of the file. This is useful if the file contains PostScript data after ANSI, PCL, or Proprinter data. If the DCPS-PLUS license has been installed, AUTOMATIC is the default method for printing files. The default initial-data-type is ANSI. Use of the AUTOMATIC data-type-name requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. 3 ANSI Specifies that the file to be printed is an ANSI file. The file is translated to PostScript for printing on the PostScript printer. ANSI refers to the Digital ANSI-Compliant PPL3 printing protocol. If the DCPS-PLUS license is not installed on your system, your print file is assumed to be ANSI unless you specify that it is PostScript. 3 DDIF Specifies that the file to be printed is a DDIF bitonal image file. DDIF (Digital Document Interchange Format) is used to encode graphic images. Other types of DDIF-encoded data, including grayscale images, color images, and text, are ignored. Use of this data-type-name requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. 3 LIST Specifies that the file to be printed is a simple ASCII file. The file is translated to PostScript for printing on the PostScript printer. The LIST translator numbers each line of text, creates alternating bars of gray and white in the background, and creates a running head of the file name and page number. Use of this data-type-name requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. 3 PCL Specifies that the file to be printed is a PCL file; that is, the file was generated for printing on a printer that supports the Hewlett-Packard Printing Control Language. If your print job contains one or more of the following print parameters, or DCPS does not support your printer in PCL mode, then the file is translated to PostScript for printing: /PARAMETERS=LAYUP_DEFINITION /PARAMETERS=NUMBER_UP /PARAMETERS=SHEET_COUNT /PARAMETERS=PAGE_LIMIT Translation of the PCL file requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. The translator assumes the file was generated for printing on the Hewlett-Packard LaserJet* IID printer. If your print job does not contain any of the previous print parameters, and DCPS supports your printer in PCL mode, the file is printed in the printer's PCL mode. This does not require that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. * LaserJet is a trademark of Hewlett-Packard Company. 3 PROPRINTER Specifies that the file to be printed is a Proprinter file; that is, the file was generated for printing on an IBM Proprinter device. The file is translated to PostScript for printing on the PostScript printer. Specifically, the translator assumes the file was generated for printing on a Proprinter XL24 printer. Use of this data-type-name requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. 3 REGIS Specifies that the file to be printed is a ReGIS graphics file. The file is translated to PostScript for printing on the PostScript printer. Use of this data-type-name requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. 3 TEKTRONIX Specifies that the file to be printed was generated for printing on a TEKTRONIX 4010/4014 device. The file is translated to PostScript for printing on the PostScript printer. Use of this data-type-name requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. 2 FONTS_USED FONTS_USED=font_module(s) Allows you to load fonts that emulate LN03 and DEClaser font cartridges when you are printing ANSI files. Font modules are available in SoftFont kits, a separate Digital product. The following command displays a list of font modules available on your system: $ LIBRARY/LIST SYS$LIBRARY:CPS$ANSI_FONTS.TLB 2 INPUT_TRAY INPUT_TRAY=tray-name Selects the input tray that provides media on which to print the job. 3 Colormate_PS You cannot select input trays with the Colormate PS printer. 3 Colorwriter_LSR_2000 You can select input trays with the following values: MAIN MULTIPURPOSE OPTIONAL_CASSETTE* ! !

Specifies layup options or a layup definition file that sets the layup features. Layup features are borders, sheet margins, alternating margins, pages per sheet, first page, page order, and page grid. Use of this parameter requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. Layup definition files are located in DCPS$LAYUP: and have the file type LUP. Do not specify the file type when you specify the layup definition file in the command line. To use a layup option and NUMBER_UP together, you must specify both on the command line or associate both with a queue. 3 Options Layup options allow you to specify the number of pages to print on each sheet of paper, their position on a sheet, the size of margins, and whether borders are printed. The layup options and the syntax for specifying values is as follows: ALTERNATE=[LEFT|RIGHT|TOP|BOTTOM] [NO]BORDERS FIRSTPAGE=n GRID=columns,rows MARGINS=t,b,l,r PAGEORDER= PAGESPERSHEET=n You can specify layup options in either a layup definition file, or in-line as part of the PRINT command. 3 In-line You can specify layup definition options in your command line by enclosing them in parentheses, and separating them with semi-colons. You must also enclose the entire layup definition string in quotes, as follows: $ PRINT/PARAMETERS=(LAYUP_DEFINITION="(option1;option2;...)") See the Examples topic for examples of PRINT commands that include in-line layup options. 3 ALTERNATE ALTERNATE=[LEFT|RIGHT|TOP|BOTTOM] Shifts every other page image in preparation for two-sided printing. Use this option in combination with the MARGINS option. Specify one of the words, LEFT, RIGHT, TOP or BOTTOM to cause the DECprint Supervisor to shift alternate page side images appropriately. Specifying LEFT or RIGHT alternates the left and right margins you specify with the MARGINS option (those margins along the long edge of a sheet of paper). Specifying TOP or BOTTOM alternates the top and bottom margins you specify. If you specify ALTERNATE with no option values, left and right margins alternate. 3 BORDERS BORDERS NOBORDERS Draws a border around each page. If you use the NUMBER_UP parameter, the default is to draw borders around each page spot. Specify NOBORDERS to inhibit drawing of borders. The default is to draw page borders whenever the layup feature is used. 3 FIRSTPAGE FIRSTPAGE=value Specifies the first page spot where a page will be printed. You must specify a value to FIRSTPAGE. The value is the number of the page spot on which to print the first page. Page spots are numbered starting at 1. The FIRSTPAGE option is useful for specifying how to print pages when you need to preview the layout of pages for documents with right and left pages. Without the FIRSTPAGE option, pages are printed at all the page spots. You can use FIRSTPAGE to print your layout in a way that reflects proper right and left orientation. The default is to use the first page spot on a sheet. 3 GRID GRID=columns,rows Sets the number of page spots on a sheet in columns and rows. Specify columns and rows as the numbers of columns and rows desired on each sheet side. This option overrides the NUMBER_UP parameter. 3 MARGINS MARGINS=t,b,l,r Sets the margins for a sheet, where t is the top margin, b is the bottom margin, l is the left margin, and r is the right margin. The numbers are interpreted as printer points, where there are 72 points to an inch, or 28.35 points per centimeter. Pages are scaled to fit within the margins. 3 PAGEORDER PAGEORDER=value Specifies the order in which pages appear on a sheet. This can be thought of as the reading order of the pages. You must supply one of the following values to PAGEORDER: RightDown Pages ordered left to right, top to bottom LeftDown Pages ordered right to left, top to bottom RightUp Pages ordered left to right, bottom to top LeftUp Pages ordered right to left, bottom to top DownRight Pages ordered top to bottom, left to right DownLeft Pages ordered top to bottom, right to left UpRight Pages ordered bottom to top, left to right UpLeft Pages ordered bottom to top, right to left 3 PAGESPERSHEET PAGESPERSHEET=value Sets the number of pages that will print per sheet, no matter how many page spots are set by the NUMBER_UP parameter. The NUMBER_UP parameter or the GRID layup option determines the maximum number of pages you can print for each sheet. PAGESPERSHEET determines only the range of page spots to use; not their layout. You must supply a value to PAGESPERSHEET, and the value must be less than the value supplied to the NUMBER_UP parameter value. 3 Examples The following PRINT commands illustrate the use of the layup feature: $ PRINT/PARAMETERS=(SIDES=2,LAYUP=LPS$DOUBLEHOLES) DOCUMENT.PS prints DOCUMENT.PS using the DCPS-supplied layup definition file LPS$DOUBLEHOLES to alternate page side images for edge-binding. $ PRINT/PARAM=(SIDES=2,NUMBER_UP=2,LAYUP="(NOBORDERS)") MAIL.TXT prints the file MAIL.TXT as two-sided, two-pages per side, and with no page borders. $ PRINT/PARAMETERS=( - LAYUP="(MARGINS=20,20,60,20;NOBORDERS;ALTERNATE=LEFT)", - SIDES=2,PAGE_ORIENTATION=LANDSCAPE - ) MONTHLY_REPORT.TXT prints the file MONTHLY_REPORT.TXT with landscape orientation, alternating page images across the long-edge margin. 2 MESSAGES [NO]MESSAGES[=([PRINT][,][KEEP])] Specifies what happens to job-generated event messages. MESSAGES or MESSAGES=PRINT specifies that messages are printed on a job log page. The message file is deleted. MESSAGES=KEEP specifies that messages are recorded in the SYS$LOGIN:DCPS$JOB_nnn.LOG file, where "nnn" is the queue entry number for the job. NOMESSAGES specifies that messages are not recorded anywhere. The default is NOMESSAGES. 2 NUMBER_UP NUMBER_UP=n NUMBER_UP specifies the maximum number of pages you can print per side of each sheet of paper. This number of pages will appear on each printed side unless you specify a different number through a LAYUP_DEFINITION option. Note that using the LAYUP_DEFINITION options can affect the actual number of pages printed per side. (A sheet is a physical piece of paper. A page is an image, which would usually be printed on one side of a single sheet.) Use of this parameter requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. The value n can be from 0 to 100. If you specify a value of 0, layup will be disabled. If you specify a value of 1, one page is printed on a side, reduced, with a border around the page. This is useful for including space around the printed page for punching holes or for stapling the print job. To use NUMBER_UP and a layup definition file together, you must specify both on the command line or associate both with a queue. 2 OUTPUT_TRAY OUTPUT_TRAY=tray-name Selects the output tray where the printer puts the printed output. If you select a tray-name for a tray that is not available on your printer, the output is sent to another tray if possible. 3 Colormate_PS You cannot select output trays with the Colormate PS printer. 3 Colorwriter_LSR_2000 You cannot select output trays with the Colorwriter LSR 2000 printer. 3 DECcolorwriter_1000 You cannot select output trays with the DECcolorwriter 1000 printer. 3 DEClaser_Printers +---------------------------+ | Output tray | | | Values | 2150 | 2250 | +---------------------------+ | FACE_UP | X | X | +---------------------------+ | LOWER | X | X | +---------------------------+ | UPPER | X | X | +---------------------------+ You cannot select output trays with the DEClaser 1150 and 1152 printers, but you can select face-up stacking using the front panel control settings. You cannot select output trays with the following printers: DEClaser 3250 DEClaser 3500 DEClaser 5100 3 Lexmark_Optra_Rt+ You cannot select output trays with the Lexmark Optra Rt+ printer. 3 LN_Printers +---------------------------------------+ | Output tray | | | | | Values |LN17ps| LN32 | LN40 | +---------------------------------------+ | STANDARD / UPPER | X | | X | +---------------------------------------+ | OCT ** | X* | | | +---------------------------------------+ | MAILBOX_nn *** | X* | X* | | +---------------------------------------+ | COLLATOR **** | X* | | | +---------------------------------------+ | FACE_UP | | X* | X* | +---------------------------------------+ | FACE_DOWN | | X | X* | +---------------------------------------+ | BIN_1 | | X* | | +---------------------------------------+ | BIN_2 | | X* | | +---------------------------------------+ | BIN_3 | | X* | | +---------------------------------------+ * Only if option is attached ** OCT stands for "Offset Catch Tray" *** where "nn" is a value from 1 to 10 **** 1 to 10 collated copies, using SHEET_COUNT You cannot select output trays with the following printers: DIGITAL Laser Printer LN15 DIGITAL Laser Printer LN16 DIGITAL Laser Printer LN20 DIGITAL Laser Printer LNC02 3 PrintServer_Printers +---------------------------------+ | Output tray | PrintServer | | Values | 17 | 20 | 32 | 40 | +---------------------------------+ | FACE_UP | X | X | X | X | +---------------------------------+ | LOWER | | X | X | | +---------------------------------+ | UPPER | X | X | X | | +---------------------------------+ | LCOS | X* | | X | X | +---------------------------------+ | SIDE | | | | X | +---------------------------------+ | TOP | | | | X | +---------------------------------+ * Only if option is attached 3 ScriptPrinter You cannot select output trays with the ScriptPrinter printer. 3 Hewlett-Packard_Printers +---------------------------------+ | | Hewlett-Packard | | Output tray | | 4SiMX | | Values | 5SiMX** | IIISi | +---------------------------------+ | FACE_UP | X | X | +---------------------------------+ | TOP | X | X | +---------------------------------+ | MAILBOX_nn* | X | | +---------------------------------+ * nn is the mailbox number. ** Mailbox numbers on the HP5SiMX are numbered 1 to 8. When the printer is in stacker mode or job separator mode, mailbox 1 is the only valid mailbox since, in these modes, the printer views the mailboxes as one logical tray. You cannot select output trays with Hewlett-Packard printers that are not listed above. 2 PAGE_LIMIT PAGE_LIMIT="([lower-limit,][upper-limit])" Specifies the numbers of the first and last pages to print. Use of this parameter requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. Header, trailer, and burst pages are not included in the count. Limits apply to an entire print job, not to each file in a multifile job. If you omit the lower limit, printing starts at the first page of the job. If you omit the upper limit, printing continues to the end of the job. You can omit the parentheses if you specify only the upper limit. The maximum value for upper-limit is 1,000,000. If you include both the lower limit and the upper limit, you must include quotation marks around the parentheses. The default is to print the entire job. 2 PAGE_ORIENTATION PAGE_ORIENTATION=logical-orientation Specifies the orientation of printed output on the logical page. Logical-orientation can be PORTRAIT or LANDSCAPE. If you do not specify PAGE_ORIENTATION, it defaults to the page orientation associated with the print queue. If there is no page orientation associated with the queue, the default is PAGE_ORIENTATION=PORTRAIT. The layup feature uses the page orientation in determining how to place the pages on the sheet. If the DATA_TYPE is POSTSCRIPT and the layup feature is not in use, this parameter is ignored. 2 PAGE_SIZE PAGE_SIZE=logical-size This parameter specifies the size of the logical page. Valid values are: A0 DOUBLEPOSTCARD A1 EXECUTIVE A2 FOLIO A3 LEGAL A4 LETTER (same as A) A5 LEDGER (same as B) B4 HALFLETTER B5 TWOTHIRDSA4 B6 7_ENVELOPE C 9_ENVELOPE D 9X12_ENVELOPE E 10X13_ENVELOPE 7X9 BUSINESS_ENVELOPE 10X14 C4_ENVELOPE 11X14 C5_ENVELOPE 12X19.5 C6_ENVELOPE 13X19 DL_ENVELOPE FOOLSCAP SPFOLIO UKQUARTO Specifying a PAGE_SIZE value in conjunction with the SHEET_SIZE value is useful for scaling pages to fit a different size of media than that for which they were formatted. Use of this scaling feature requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system. If you do not specify SHEET_SIZE in your PRINT command, the PAGE_SIZE value is assumed to be the physical sheet size as well. In a print job where both PAGE_SIZE and SHEET_SIZE are not specified, the DECprint Supervisor software assumes the size of the media that is loaded into the default input tray. 2 SHEET_COUNT SHEET_COUNT=number Specifies the number of copies of each sheet to print. The printed output is uncollated, unless the OUTPUT_TRAY value is COLLATOR. Use of this parameter requires that the DCPS-PLUS license be installed on your system, unless the OUTPUT_TRAY value is COLLATOR. The value for number can be 1 through 10,000 for uncollated copies. For collated copies, the valid values for number are as allowed by the printer's collator option. The default is SHEET_COUNT=1. 2 SHEET_SIZE SHEET_SIZE=physical-size Specifies the physical size of the sheets being printed. If you do not specify SHEET_SIZE, it defaults to PAGE_SIZE. If you also do not specify PAGE_SIZE, SHEET_SIZE defaults to the value specified for the queue. 3 Colormate_PS Valid SHEET_SIZE values are LETTER (same as A), and A4. 3 Colorwriter_LSR_2000 Valid SHEET_SIZE values are LETTER (same as A), A4, B5, and LEGAL. 3 DECcolorwriter_1000 Valid SHEET_SIZE values are LETTER (same as A), and A4. 3 DEClaser Printers

sheet, and whether it will print in tumble mode. Sides-layout-value can be: 1, ONE, or Your job is printed on one side of the sheet. ONE_SIDED_SIMPLEX 2, TWO, or Your job is printed on both sides of a sheet. TWO_SIDED_DUPLEX TUMBLE or Your job is printed on both sides of the sheet, TWO_SIDED_TUMBLE and alternating pages are rotated 180°. ONE_SIDED_DUPLEX Your job prints on one side of the sheet. This setting reflects the placement of margins. ONE_SIDED_TUMBLE Your job prints on one side of the sheet. Alternating pages are rotated 180°. This setting reflects the placement of margins. TWO_SIDED_SIMPLEX Your job is printed on both sides of a sheet. This setting does not reflect the placement of margins. The SIDES command is overridden if the file contains an operator that sets the duplex value. 3 Colormate_PS Valid SIDES value is ONE_SIDED_SIMPLEX.
