# Description

The jBASE spooler program. This is the jBASE equivalent of the unix lp command. It takes the general form:

where:

jlp {options} {filename}
1

where:

  • FileName can be any of the following:
    • Windows or UNIX file name
    • Database file + record keys
    • Database file + '*'
    • Database file + Select list.

If FileName is omitted, then all input is assumed to come from stdin.

  • options may be:
Option Description
-aAssignOptions Change the default assignment options
-cCount Change the default number of copies to Count
-m Multi-queue support. Data MUST come from stdin, and an 8-byte header preceeds each print element.
-qQueueName Override the default queue name.
-rReportNumber Use a different report number other than 0.
-s Do not display what queue we have printed to.

# Note

The jlp command will respect the current form queue assignment from the most recent SP-ASSIGN command. The action of this program is also affected by the 'JBC_PRINT_ASSIGN_n' environment variables.
