Examples of items where overrides can be used are:.
IBM i: Example: Apply OVRPRTF with *PRTF
Any printer or attachment that does not support resident fonts can not support IPDS pass-through. This is because the override in the CL program is deleted when the CL program ends.
Changing the name of the file to be processed Indicating whether output is to be spooled Changing printer characteristics such as lines per inch and number of copies It is also possible to use overrides to direct data input or data that is sent to a device of a different type. An immediate allocation of the device by the device resource is required when an acquire operation is performed to the file.
Regardless of how they are issued, overrides remain in effect only for the job, program, or sign on session in which they are issued.
Overrides can be called from different levels programs calling another program. Examples of items where overrides can be used are: An override is only active for the current sign on session. This parameter does not specify the printer character density of alphanumeric characters. Overriding a file is different from changing a file in that ieries override does not permanently change the attributes of ovrprft file.
Level checking cannot be done unless the program contains the record format identifiers. You can iseriss override functions for files using the following CL commands: This use of overrides requires somewhat more foresight than the override applications listed above. This article discusses overriding printer files. The system supplies three override functions: This value is not allowed if the file was created on a system at an earlier release level than V2R3M0.
For example, if you override the number of copies specified in a printer file by requesting six copies instead of two, the file description for the printer file still specifies two copies, but six copies are printed. The override command tells the system which file to open and what its file attributes are.
The program must be able to accommodate the different characteristics of the two devices involved.
Alphanumeric characters are printed with the value specified on the CPI parameter. Some fonts can be substituted by the printer. You can process override functions for files using the following CL commands:.
Overrides are used to temporarily specify a different printer file or temporarily change some of the attributes of a file. You can override these file names or attributes of a specified file when you compile a program or run a program. You can use overrides to change most, but not all, of the file attributes that are specified when the file is created. Overriding files printer files, display files, diskette files, database files, and tape files can be done by commands, from CL programs, or from high-level language programs.
For information about the special considerations that are required for overrides that change the file type or redirect files, see the Distributed data management topic. Overlays are not reduced when more than one page is printed on a side. Overrides have no effect on izeries jobs that might be running at the same time. Overrides are particularly useful for making minor changes to the way a program functions iseris for selecting the data on which it operates, without ovtprtf to recompile the program.
This parameter overrides the copy value specified in the printer file. However, if the printer is positioned at the top of the page line number one and the channel value forms-control value is associated with line number one, the printer does not advance to a new a new page.
Files are associated with an application program by the file names specified in the program when it is created. If this command is specified, the Display Override DSPOVR command will either display or print the override along with any others that are specified on this command.
It is also possible to use overrides to direct data input or data that is sent to a device of a different type. However, if ovrprtff high-level language program calls a CL program that overrides a file, the override is deleted automatically when control returns to the high-level language program.
Their principal value is in allowing you to use general purpose programs in a wider variety of circumstances. Printer file overrides Overriding files printer files, display files, diskette files, database files, and tape files can be done by commands, from CL programs, or from high-level language programs.
