Recently we have started using lp5250d to output as400 spool files to text, which we then process for use in another manner. Since the Linux process does not know whent the complete spool file has been received, it checks the end of the file for specific content. If the content exists (*** END OF REPORT ***) then it assumes the document has been spooled and is ready for further processing.
Are you saying that you modified lp5250d? lp5250d certainly does know when the end of the spool file has been reached. What makes you believe that it doesn't? The following outputcommand works perfectly for me:
