Displays printer or formqueue status. It takes the general form:
where options may be:

may yield something that looks like this:
PRINTER ASSIGNMENTS 14:20:13 1 APR 2018 PRINTER ----- FORMQ ----- PAGE STATUS DEVICE TYPE # NAME SKIP NT 0 STANDARD 1 KILLED PORT 1 SCREEN 1 STOPPED
The printer number is a reference to the Formqueue number. This number can be matched to Formqueues created with Formqueue name Fn, where n is the Form queue number. The page skip, status and device fields are as per SP-JOBS.
1134 1171 1 1 127 127 3
Shows typical output to the secondary input buffer of a jCL program where 1134 is the LISTPTR error message identifier. 1171 means that the printer/formqueue is inactive, the printer number is one, and the formqueue number is 1, 127 is reserved and 3 is the number of page skips.
