How QMF interfaces with your GDDM nickname

QMF interfaces with GDDM nicknames through the standard interface provided by GDDM, which issues a call that allows QMF to open a GDDM print file.

The following defaults are provided by QMF on the DSOPEN call when the PRINT command begins:
  • The device type is set to Family 2
  • The device token is set to *
  • No processing options are in place (PROCOPT is set to zero)
  • The only entry in the name list is the nickname

The print operation is carried out one page at a time using the ASCPUT and FSFRCE GDDM services. When printing is complete, QMF closes the print operation with a DSDROP statement.
