Query/400 enables a /line wrap/ feature if\when requested for
spooled\printed reports. The option is available only in the
*QRYDFN, not from RUNQRY [e.g. as for some of the other print\spool
report writer options].
I think the prtf name is QPQXPRTF - its default width is 80
characters. Note that QPQUPRFIL, the prtf for interactive SQL
and Query, has a default width of 132. I just noticed that the
replacement character for unprintable is different from one to
the other of these prtfs - interesting.
Query/400 does not prevent binary data from going directly to the
spool\printer [nor display where it will reactively rewrite the
display if\when bad data is diagnosed by the workstation controller
at the device]. The design assumption was that any binary data
spooled would be accidental, and the default RPLUNPRT(*YES x'40')
was chosen to handle such cases. The QMQRY feature may /translate/
binary data [possibly as a feature of the UIM] before writing to the
printer file, so the replace unprintable would then be redundant;
presumably why its printer file uses RPLUNPRT(*NO).
