APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
An RPG program uses a printer file to create PDF documents using
the WSCST(*PDF) and TOSTMF parameters.  This was working until
the program went into production, now after a short while it
fails with a CPF4182 exception.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE59012' :
-------------------------------
There was a error in the operating system print code that
deletes the empty PDF output if there were no writes to the
printer file. (File open/close with no reads or writes is common
in RPG programming).  The PDFs were unlinked but never closed.
Eventually the job would hit the limit of 200 open file handles
from these deleted-but-unclosed stream files.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE59012' :
----------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions

If this PTF is applied or removed with DELAY(*NO), without an IPL, you
should first end all printer writers or end the QSPL subsystem.  The
PTF will take effect when the writers are restarted.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
