STARTSPOOL


STARTSPOOL

     Initiates the spooler process for a device.  (CM)

SYNTAX


STARTSPOOL {ldev[;SHUTQ]}
{devclass }


PARAMETERS


ldev The logical device number of a spooled
device. When the spooler gains control of
the specified device, it controls spooling
to it as well as to all device classes
which reference the device.

devclass The device class specified in the I/O
configuration. When used, it applies
to all devices belonging to the class specified.

SHUTQ May be specified with the ldev parameter
only. The spooler will print files waiting
in the queue for device ldev, but prevents
the creation of new spoolfiles.

OPERATION


To start the spooling process for a specified device, issue the
STARTSPOOL command with the ldev parameter. When devclass is used
with STARTSPOOL, the command applies to all devices that belong to
the device class specified. It would be as though a STARTSPOOL
command were issued for each individual device.

This command may be issued from a session, job, in BREAK, or
from a program. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this
command. It may be issued only at the console, unless distributed
to users with the ALLOW or ASSOCIATE commands.


EXAMPLE(S)

     To start spooling all output to logical device 6, enter

STARTSPOOL 6

To start spooling output to all devices in class LP, enter

To start spooling on logical device 6 while preventing the
