APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
A *AFPDS spooled file is created from an externally-described
printer file. The default value if CHRID(*DEVD) is used on this
printer file, and the CHRID DDS keyword is not used. The text is
being printed using printer-resident FONT ids. It is expected
that the text in the spooled file would print using the CHRID in
the printer *DEVD. Very intermittently, a page will print that
uses a different CHRID value. This can result in incorrect
characters being printed.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE55871' :
-------------------------------
The character set and code page in the Mapped Coded Fonts (MCF2)
commands must be updated with the printer device CHRID value as
the data is sent to the printer.  This spooled file has a large
MCF2 command that straddles a buffer boundary, with most of the
command at the end of one buffer and a small amount in the next.
The partial command is too big to save in the buffer normally
used for this, so the MCF2 was skipped over and not updated with
the CHRID value.

The partial command buffer has been increased in size
significantly.  It has also been moved to a new location when it
can be increased again if the problem ever recurs.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE55871' :
----------------------------------
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.
