While some parameter specifications on a Print Document (PRTDOC) command request may result in [will force] an attempt by the command invocation to invoke a feature of the interactive OV/400 LPP, that command itself [and other non-LPP functionality] is part of the OS itself. The OS features remain functional [and AFaIK are supported; though if the error is in the document itself, no joy] irrespective the loss of the LPP. A document with field instructions can still produce a spooled result with the results of a [implicit or actual *QRYDFN] query including multiple-document merge results; similarly, the Merge Document (MRGDOC) command. The EDTDOC and DSPDOC were part of the LPP, and those commands would not exist on a system in V5 if the LPP were properly removed with the DLTLICPGM [either by the user or implicitly by the OS].
