Hi to all , i am using lp5250d under linux and i am getting a strange
behaviour..
The printer has env.IBMMFRTYPMDL=*LEXOPTRAC, because i want to get a PCL
output and the outputcommand contains "myscript" that is a bash script.
This is what i'm doing inside :

scs2ascii /home/alberto/outfile$$

This works like a charm, except if i send "big" spool files to the AS/400
printer handled by lp5250d.
(Big means that the output file will be big more than 1Mb.)
I will get two outfileXXXX for a single spool file. Means that the print job
will get "splitted" in two threads.
If i don't use the HPT and i use the SCS2ASCII i will get a single file.
There could be a reason for that? Some kind of a limit on the emulator?
(even a fix?) :-)

Thanks a lot.
Alberto.
