HI, Chuck
sorry to hear about your printer prob; wish I knew of solution; on our old
4234s sometimes the operator didn't replace all the correct switches and
levers after changing ribbons. The printer would print and outq would look
like its running ok but the output forms wouldn't have any print on them
because the hammers weren't able to reach the forms.
BTW, you noted you came from a Unix box; I'm curious to know what kind of
Unix, Unix box, and application. The reason is my company is merging with
another which is Unix dominated. The current mentality is replacing our CISC
AS400 with a Unix-NT only environment with 6-9 months (rather than upgrading
to RISC AS400). They're planning on rewriting our apps (service order
dispatching with billing/invoicing/client info backends) in C++. We have
about 40 GB of data and some 3/4 million lines of code (in RPG). In
addition, we also have JDEdwards running; how does that compare to your
reverse situation?
TIA
