Spooler options can be specified to most spooler commands. Some have numeric arguments.
To keep these options clear for the options interpreter, it is recommended that numeric

sets parameters for hold file output, suppresses print out at the end of the job, routes output
to form queue 1, and 3 copies.
The spaces in this option string are optional, in this
case, since there are no instances of back-to-back numeric parameters. Options can be
placed in any order. Consider the case:
sp-assign f1 3 hs ?
space between the 1 and 3, one copy of the output is directed to form queue 13, rather than
Note: Spooler options do not have to be enclosed in parentheses like options with other
TCL commands. If numeric options are within parentheses, parameters outside of the parentheses
