Sorry, I had the wrong URL. Here is the correct one.

Subject: RE: saving spool files


I have a utility called SAVSPLF out on the News/400 web site at 

URL - http://www.news400.com/sharewarefiles/msd0001.bat

This utility takes a spool file and converts it to text and then blank
compresses everything into a continuous stream of data with a audit report.
The resulting file is just a physical file with fixed length records so you
then just copies it to a tape as a standard NL or as a fixed standard block.


There is second command included in the package called RSTSPLF. This command
allows you to restore any spool file from the physical created by SAVSPLF. 

Two covents: 

1. I have been using the product for ten years but somebody called me to say
there was bug but have not had time to check that out.
2. Utility is written in RPG/III and uses the CPYF command to convert the
spool files to text so it doesn't do AFP right. I need to rewrite it in RPG
ILE and use the spool file API's but just haven't had the time. 

Hope this helps.

does anyone know of a good software shareware or freeware that will just let
me do a simple save of a spool file to tape.
