You can skip the SPLFs and write directly to PDFs (at least at v6r1m0 you can):

OVRPRTF FILE(print-file) DEVTYPE(*AFPDS) WSCST(*PDF) TOSTMF('/usr/local/pdfs/my-pdf-file.pdf')

CALL PGM(myrpgpgm)

DLTOVR FILE(print-file)

This -does- work with overlays! At least, full-page overlays:

OVRPRTF FILE(print-file) TOFILE(afp-capable-file) DEVTYPE(*AFPDS) FRONTOVL(overlaylib/overlay) USRDTA('YourTextHere') TOSTMF('my-pdf-file.pdf') WSCST(*PDF) etc. etc.

This requires no changes to your program(s), just a CLP 'wrapper' around the process. It does do away with an iSeries spooled file, however.
