Don't know about device allocation for spooling. Has anyone run a different subsystem for printing? I suppose it's possible. But there is nowhere in the SBSD to specify print device names.

The matter of hung devices can be handles by that call to some special program for releasing the lock on the device, IIRC.

So on anything further I speak mostly out of "I don't know"

IBM Manuals DO tend to help, as well as snippets from them, eh Vern?

But anything in them about SPL??  Wonder if EndWtr StrWtr mebbe (getting it
back to *VRYON status) would allow a new spooling SuBSys to allocate, in
case one gets hung??
