  • Subject: Printer File Line Count
  • From: Joe Giusto <JDG@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
  • Date: Mon, 6 Jul 1998 12:36:40 -0400

Is there any way to know what line number of a printed page i am on
without keeping my own line counter?  i looked in the INFDS but unless i
am missing something, it is not there.  (pos 152 - 153 binary will show
the number of lines of the printer file but not the number of lines used
on the page.)  we have a need for dynamic overflow (summary lines for an
account can vary in number which is why i can not just set and check for
overflow).  Hate to set it to something like 50 and waste 16 lines of
space if i don't have to.

thank you,

Joe Giusto
