> CONVERTING SPOOL FILES TO HTML DOCUMENTS
> Q. How do I convert a spool file containing a report into an HTML
> document that can be viewed in a Web browser?
> 
> A. It depends on how fancy you want it to look. If you want to control
> exactly the way it looks in the Web browser, the easiest way is to
> output the HTML into the spool file itself as the report is created.
> If you simply want to be able to view the spool file in a browser
> window, you can include a few HTML tags that make it a valid HTML
> document and instruct the browser to display the file in a fixed-width
> font. I've created a little CL program that automatically converts a
> spool file that you identify into an HTML document and copies it into
> your AS/400 Web directory.
> 
> The first thing the utility does is create a work file in QTEMP. The
> next step is to copy some HTML tags to that file to begin a valid HTML
> document. These tags are
> 
> <html><head><title>Any title you like here</title></head><body><pre>
> 
> The next step is to add the text of the spool file to the work file
> with the CPYSPLF command. Then, the ending HTML tags are added to the
> end of the work file:
> 
> </pre></body></html>
> 
> After that, the work file is ready to be copied to your Web server.
> You will find instructions and source code for the CL program at
