sp-open command

The sp-open command leaves the next spooler entry generated by the current process open upon completion of the output generating process. Any subsequent (printer) output is attached to the end of the open entry, until an sp-close command or an sp-assign command is issued.

Warning: When an sp-open is in effect, it is necessary to do an sp-close to complete output of the job. This is especially noticeable when spooling directly to UNIX or to tape.


When no entry number displays, this is attached to the open entry.
