Special Instructions


If this PTF is applied or removed as a "Delayed" PTF, which requires an
IPL, no special consideration is necessary. If this PTF is applied or
removed "Immediate" and you want to make use of the new longer lengths
for the INITPRT or RESETPRT workstation customizing object tags, any
writers which use workstation customizing objects with longer INITPRT
or RESETPRT strings, will need to be ended. When the writers are
started again, the PTF code will be active.
