Can you tell us how to reproduce this problem? You don't have to debug lp5250d for us -- just tell us how we can create the same problem on our machines.

Hi James , thanks for your answer!
I'm sorry for the mistake, probably caused by my very BAD english and no, i
don't want that the split happens because i sometimes do some kind of
"postprocessing" of the output file and i really need to have only one file.
Means one spool file with one output file, nothing more and nothing less :-)

Looking at the spool file from the AS/400 side, dumping it with CPYSPLF
*FCFC and *PRTCTL it seems there isn't nothing special at the page where
the file get splitted.
Then i've generated a output file using Iseries Access for Windows using the
same configuration of lp5250d, and at the page where the split happens there
is no trace of the ÿ character, and the file is complete.

If i concatenate the two files i get when the problem happens, the output
pcl file is absolutely valid and usable.
So the lp5250d seems that sometimes receives some unpredictable char from
the AS/400 and closes the output file before the writer has completed the
job, then the writer still sends the remaining pages and the emulator
creates a new file.
This is what i've noticed, let me know if you need more informations and
Thanks a lot!
