Spooler account

The spooler account holds a file called peqs that is used to reference spooler jobs as normal D3 items and can be listed, sorted, and selected in any sequence.

The data section of this file is a Q-pointer to the peqs: driver. The Q-pointer signals the save processor to dump both the spooler header information and the spooler jobs to tape.

The QS super Q-pointer was not put into dm because confusion could result if the peqs file was restored accidentally.

Spooler jobs can be restored from previous file saves. Individual items or the entire file can be restored to a temporary file, then copied to the spooler as needed, or the entire contents of the previous spooler can be overlaid on the current spooler.

Note: The file-save must be completed with the e option to save spooler jobs.
