From IBM:

Thank you for your feedback on the Printer DDS section of the IBM i
InfoCenter. You are correct that many of the AFPDS keywords which were
originally only supported by PSF are now supported by the Host Print
Transform function of the IBM i operating system. The next time the
Printer DDS section of the InfoCenter is updated, we will include this
change.

:)

Then I guess this part of the InfoCenter Rational Developer for i>DDS for
Printer Files>Keyword entries.. is incorrect:

Specify DEVTYPE(*AFPDS) on the CRTPRTF command when AFPRSC is specified in
the file. If DEVTYPE is changed to anything other than *AFPDS, the keyword
is ignored and a warning message is issued at print time.
..
A maximum of 10 AFP or non-AFP resources can be used on a single page. Only
one AFPRSC keyword can be used on a record.
AFP or non-AFP resources are not automatically rotated when using the PAGRTT
keyword or the PAGRTT parameter on the printer file.
You cannot specify AFPRSC with the following keywords:
SPACEA
SPACEB
SKIPA
SKIPB
Note: Feature Print Services FacilityT (PSF) is required for use of this
keyword. If PSF is not installed, you will not be able to print files using
this keyword and specifying DEVTYPE(*AFPDS).

Thanks for the update.
Jim

It is required for *IPDS printers

But not when using Host Print Transform (HPT) to print to ASCII
printers...
