BTW, we use remote outqs to send SPLFs between systems. Very easy & you only have to set it up once. To use, just send change the SPLFs to that outq and the system sends them automatically. It's pretty fast, too.

Yeah, I use remote outqs, LAN printer devices, *WSCSTs, etc., when... ummm... reasonable.

However, in _this_ office, systems get wiped clean, rebuilt, parted out, parted in, configured, de-configured... if you can think of it, some variation has been done. We have our own form of 'Franken-i' named SPAREPTS which was literally built from spare parts discarded from a number of other places.

Reliance on existing objects is questionable behavior on most of our systems. You gotta fend for yourself on the experimental ones. In this case, the experimentation is with IPv6 networking.

I would have created the outq and started a writer, but just thought there might be something I hadn't noticed before.

I'm always amazed when I scan for new commands and parms. I _always_ find something surprising. The last serious surprise I recall was the STRHTTPCRL command...!

"New finds" is probably deserving of a thread by itself.
