Boy we just got thru doing this here.  How fast I forget!  I did not have
the form length and page overflow the same so I did not have the blank page.
Your DDS/O specs must be using a SPACEA.  Translated to the blank SPACEB in
the copy.  I guess the writer knows that if you are on line 1 and you get a
skip to line 1, do not bother to advance the page cuse you are already
there.  Try keeping track of the line you are on in your program, if equal
to the skip to, skip it. ;-)

You have it backwards.  1-3 are SKIPB and 4 is spaceb.  Which is why to me
the example should have been...

    1Text Goes here       (last line of prev. page)
 001                      (** first line of new page)
    1                     (second line of new page)
 001 More Text            (** first line of new page) 
    1Even More            (second line of new page)
    1And even more        (third line of new page)  

But apparently either there's a bug in the CPYSPLF command when page size =
Overflow size or something else is amuk.  I've even tried to duplicate this
with test programs but couldn't do it.  Using this there is a blank page
between pages 1 and 2, when there shouldn't be.

Dazed and confused...
