DCPS Version 2.0 Information 1–1
1.1.3 Installation Procedure Changed
When installing DCPS when no previous DCPS version is installed, the
installation procedure asks about the location for layup files. Previously, if
the default location was accepted, the procedure would indicate the directory
did not exist and ask if it should be created. Since this directory will always
be created regardless of the answer to the question, the installer will no longer
be told the directory does not exist and will no longer be asked if it should be
created. The installer will continue to be asked about creating the directory if the
default location is not chosen.
1.1.4 Tray Names Added
The front input tray on the GENICOM LN28 printer can now be selected with
the name MULTIPURPOSE in addition to the name FRONT.
Input tray 1 on the HP LaserJet 4000 and 4050 printers can now be selected with
the name MULTIPURPOSE in addition to the name TRAY_1.
1.2 DCPS Version 2.0 Fixes
The following problems are fixed in DCPS V2.0.
1.2.1 Output Trays Not Selectable
With DCPS V1.8, it was not possible to select output trays on the Lexmark Optra
S 1855 and the Tektronix Phaser 780 printer.
1.2.2 PCL Translator Character Incorrect
When using the Swedish/Finnish character set, the DCPS PCL translator would
print the ’å’ character incorrectly as ’á’.
1.2.3 Help File Incomplete
With DCPS V1.8, part of the online help about Lexmark printers was missing
from the help file.
1.2.4 IVP Fails with ODS-5 Extended File Parsing
If the installation process was running with ODS-5 file parsing (SET
PROCESS=EXTENDED), the DCPS IVP would fail.

DCPS Restrictions
The following sections identify the current restrictions that exist with DECprint
Supervisor. See DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s Guide and
DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS User’s Guide for printer-specific restrictions.
2.1 Job Remains in Starting State for Raw TCP/IP Queue
If you set up a DCPS queue that uses a raw TCP/IP connection and specify an
incorrect TCP port number for the printer, any print jobs that you submit to the
queue will remain in a starting state. DCPS cannot determine that you have
provided an incorrect port number, because the network failure that it receives is
no different than if the printer had been busy or offline.
Note that a print job in a raw TCP/IP queue may remain in a starting state for
other reasons as well.
Check the documentation for your printer, network interface card, print server, or
terminal server to determine the correct TCP port number to use. The TCP port
number may also be listed in Table A–1.
2.2 Connection Terminations for Raw TCP/IP Queue
You may get CONTERMINATED errors for long print jobs when using raw
TCP/IP connections. For jobs that consist of a single file or only use the native
PostScript capability of the printer (for example, they do not use native PCL),
these errors are most likely to occur at the end of the job, with job trailer pages
(if specified for the queue) and print job accounting (if enabled) being lost. For
other jobs, these errors may occur in the middle of the job, with subsequent
documents as well as the trailer pages and accounting information being lost.
DCPS requeues the terminated jobs, placing them in a Holding state so that you
can reprint them once you resolve the termination problem.
Some network devices, including the HP JetDirect cards, drop a TCP/IP
connection if they do not receive any input from the host system within a
specified amount of time. This is a feature, meant to prevent host software from
monopolizing the device. DCPS, however, waits for the printer to acknowledge
that previous documents are printed before switching from PostScript to some
other native printer language and also before printing a trailer page and
gathering accounting information. Even though the printer may be busy, the NIC
may not receive any more input from DCPS before the timeout is reached.
If your NIC allows you to alter the TCP/IP idle timeout value, you can work
around this problem by disabling or increasing the timeout. Check your NIC
documentation to determine if this is possible, and how to do it. Then release any
requeued jobs for which desired output was lost, and delete the other requeued
jobs.
DCPS Restrictions 2–1
Note that it is the length of a job in time (versus size) that is important. For
example, a very small PostScript program can take a very long time to print.
Hence, it is difficult to predict how large a timeout is adequate.
2.3 NOT_READY Warnings for Unavailable Raw TCP/IP Printer
If a job is queued to a printer that uses a raw TCP/IP connection, and the printer
is busy or offline, you will get NOT_READY warning messages for the printer.
If you believe or determine that the printer is busy, you can ignore these
messages. DCPS cannot, unfortunately, differentiate between the printer being
busy, offline, or otherwise unavailable.
2.4 Translators Do Not Generate Color PostScript
The translators provided with DCPS (for example, ReGIS) do not generate color
PostScript commands, even if your source file contains color information. The
colors are instead translated to various shades of gray.
2.5 Job Trailer Page Jogs with PostScript Level 2 Printers
When job jogging is enabled on PostScript Level 2 printers to separate jobs by
offsetting them, jogging occurs between the body of a job and its trailer page (if
any).
2.6 Unable to Perform ANSI Tray Selection for Certain Printers
An attempt to print an ANSI file containing a tray selection escape sequence
might fail, depending on which printer you are using. If so, the job might
abort with a PostScript configuration error, with the offending command being
‘‘setpapertray’’.
Also, some printers, such as the Compaq Laser Printer LN16 and GENICOM
microLaser 170, have input trays with PostScript tray numbers of 0. The ANSI
escape sequence DECASFC is used to select trays, but a value of 0 means "no
tray change" and selecting tray 0 is therefore not possible. For example, an ANSI
escape sequence of
<CSI>0!v
does not select tray 0, but rather indicates no change of tray.
A workaround to this problem is to create and subsequently invoke a
setup module that redefines the settoptray, setbottomtray, setlcittray and
setmanualfeedtray PostScript commands within the TRN$XLATE_DICT
dictionary.
For example, for a Compaq Laser Printer LN16, DIGITAL Laser Printer
LN15 or LN15+, or GENICOM microLaser 170, you should create a setup
module that contains the following definitions for settoptray, setbottomtray and
setmanualfeedtray:
TRN$XLATE_DICT begin
/settoptray
{ statusdict begin 0 setpapertray end } def
/setbottomtray
{ statusdict begin 1 setpapertray end } def
/setmanualfeedtray { statusdict begin 3 setpapertray end } def
end
2–2 DCPS Restrictions
For an HP LaserJet 4M Plus, you should create a setup module that contains:
TRN$XLATE_DICT begin
/settoptray
{ statusdict begin 3 setpapertray end } def
/setbottomtray { statusdict begin 0 setpapertray end } def
/setlcittray { statusdict begin 1 setpapertray end } def
end
PostScript tray numbers are documented in the DECprint Supervisor for
OpenVMS User’s Guide.
2.7 AppleTalk Queues Do Not Start or Jobs Remain in Starting
State
The first print queue in the process to use AppleTalk fails with the following error
and the queue does not start:
%DCPS-W-ATK_FOR_VMS, Error connecting to AppleTalk for VMS driver
If other queues using the AppleTalk interconnect are started on that same
process this error is not reported. These queues will start, but jobs on these
queues remain in the ‘‘starting’’ state.
If a queue using the AppleTalk interconnect is started before the AppleTalk
network software is running, then the queue might start but will not be
functional. This occurs when DCPS is running as a multistreamed symbiont and
another print queue is running in the same process.
To recover from such an error, stop all queues supported by any currently running
symbiont processes that have detected that the AppleTalk network software is
not running (one error message is generated per symbiont process). Restart the
AppleTalk software and the queues.
To avoid this problem, run the AppleTalk network software before starting any
DCPS print queues.
2.8 Some Printers Do Not Send Status Messages to the Host
Some PostScript printers, because of their internal architecture, report status
information only to the printer console and not to the host system with which
they are communicating. As a result, DCPS is not aware of some status
conditions (for example, paper out, paper jam, page too complex, cover open, etc.)
and cannot report them to you. Instead, the DCPS queue will enter the Stalled
state if DCPS subsequently attempts to communicate with the printer. This
subsequent attempt may come during the same job that first experienced the
problem or in a later one.
The following is a list of some of the printers which exhibit this behavior:
- DEClaser 5100 printer
- LN17ps printer
- some HP LaserJet III and IV printers (but not the HP LaserJet III with the
HP PostScript-Plus Level 2 cartridge or the HP LaserJet IIISi if jam recovery
is disabled)
DCPS Restrictions 2–3
2.9 Printer Name Is Not Always Printed Correctly
When multinational characters are used in the PostScript ‘‘printername’’, the
printer name printed on the bottom of separation pages may be printed in the
wrong character set.
2.10 DDIF Printing Requires DECwindows Software or DECimage
Application Services
To print DDIF encoded bitonal images, DCPS requires that either DECwindows
software or Version 3.1 of DECimage Application Services (DAS) be installed on
your system. DAS is only available on OpenVMS VAX systems.
2.11 Compatibility of NUMBER_UP and PostScript Drivers
PostScript files created with the LaserWriter 8.0 or 8.1.1 driver or the Adobe 2.1.1
Windows driver in conjunction with the application may produce PostScript files
that do not print as expected with NUMBER_UP greater than 1.
Symptoms include pages being clipped, printed outside of the NUMBER_UP page
spots, or being improperly scaled.
2.12 LIST Translator Ignores PAGE_SIZE Parameter
The LIST translator ignores the PAGE_SIZE parameter when formatting pages.
It creates pages with maximum content at a size adequate for both A (Letter) and
A4 paper:
PORTRAIT ORIENTATION: 80 columns, 70 lines
LANDSCAPE ORIENTATION: 150 columns, 66 lines
It is still possible to use PAGE_SIZE and SHEET_SIZE parameters together
(with the DCPS-PLUS license) to scale the logical page onto a different size
sheet.
2.13 Embedded PJL Commands Discarded; Avoid Binary Mode
Drivers that create files for PJL printers, such as those for the DEClaser 5100
and the HP LaserJet IV family, include printer control commands in HP Printer
Job Language (PJL). DCPS filters out and discards that data. Therefore, printer
options selected by such drivers do not affect the print job.
When using these drivers, do NOT select binary mode. It will insert additional
commands into the file that can cause incorrect behavior when printing via
DCPS. The exact form of behavior depends on which printer is actually connected
to the queue and whether or not the job passes through a DCPS translator.
2.14 Unreliable Communication After Errors on Some Printers
Unexpected errors can occur at the end of a print job when printing to some
printers using the AppleTalk interconnect. The printers which can exhibit
problems include the LaserWriter Pro 600, LaserWriter Pro 630, the LaserWriter
IIg, and the LaserWriter IIf. Generally, the unexpected error occurs when an
explainable error occurred during the print job; for example, a PostScript error
which causes the PostScript interpreter to ‘‘Flush to the EOJ’’, or a timeout error
while waiting for manual feed. The behavior a user may see includes one of more
of the following:
•
A second PostScript error or timeout error occurs
2–4 DCPS Restrictions
•
DCPS unexpectedly loses communication with the printer
•
The job trailer page (if specified) may not print
•
The page count in the accounting file is not correct
•
A delay of up to one minute before the job completes.
The user’s part of the print job prints as expected. The unexpected error occurs
during the end of job processing (for example, getting the page count or the job
trailer page printed) done by the DECprint Supervisor. Once the offending job is
complete, subsequent jobs print as expected. No system operator intervention is
needed.
2.15 Deleting Job When Using AppleTalk
When printing using an AppleTalk interconnect, a request to delete a job
(DELETE/ENTRY) is accomplished by closing the connection to the printer. The
AppleTalk protocol does not provide for interrupting the PostScript interpreter;
therefore, the printer will continue to print page descriptions that are contained
in its buffer before it stops printing the job. A job trailer page will not be
printed.
2.16 Avoid STOP/QUEUE/RESET Usage for PrintServer Printer
Which Is Rejecting Connections
If you issue a STOP/QUEUE/RESET command for a queue to a DIGITAL
PrintServer printer while there is a job in the ‘‘Starting’’ state and while the
printer is rejecting connections (because, for example, the PrintServer is powered
off or is booting), the queue will stop. Occasionally the symbiont process will not
terminate. Avoid issuing this command until the PrintServer printer becomes
available. If the job is in the ‘‘Starting’’ state and also in the PrintServer printer’s
job queue, a STOP/QUEUE/RESET will execute correctly.
2.17 No Job Trailer Page on DELETE/ENTRY
If you issue a DELETE/ENTRY command when the printer is printing the job
trailer page, it is possible to delete the printing of this page. Also, if you issue a
DELETE/ENTRY command for a job printing on a PrintServer printer after all
the data for the file is sent, it is possible that the job trailer page will not print.
2.18 Problems with PostScript Files When Printing with /COPIES
When you use the /COPIES qualifier with a PostScript file, DCPS surrounds each
file with a PostScript ‘‘save’’ and ‘‘restore’’ to avoid exhausting virtual memory in
the printer.
However, there are infrequent cases when the print job aborts with an invalid
restore error message. If this occurs, use the /JOB_COUNT qualifier instead of
/COPIES.
2.19 Problems Using PAGE_LIMIT with /JOB_COUNT
If you use the PAGE_LIMIT parameter with the /JOB_COUNT qualifier, you
are apt to get undesired results. In particular, if your intent is to suppress some
initial pages of your job, DCPS will suppress them for the first copy of the job but
print all pages of subsequent job copies. If your intent is to suppress some of the
DCPS Restrictions 2–5
trailing pages of your job, DCPS will suppress them for the first copy of the job
and omit subsequent job copies.
If you want multiple copies of your job with some pages suppressed, issue the
PRINT command the desired number of times rather than using the /JOB_
COUNT qualifier.
2.20 Printers with Auto-Sensing Features
Many printers can sense the data type of a print job. Such printers allow you to
specify how and whether the auto-sensing feature is enabled, per interconnect
channel, through the front panel.
For most printers that offer this feature, the DECprint Supervisor software works
properly when the printer is set to ‘‘PostScript’’ mode, or to ‘‘Automatic’’ mode.
You must set such printers to operate in one of these modes before starting the
DCPS queues. The DCPS software does not operate properly if the printer is set
to ‘‘PCL’’ mode.
See Chapter 4 and the DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s
Guide for additional information.
2.21 Setting I/O Buffers Too Small May Produce OPCOM Errors
If the size of the I/O buffers, set by the SYSGEN parameter MAXBUF, is
too small, the print queue will be stopped, and the following message will be
displayed to OPCOM:
%SYSTEM-E-EXQUOTA, process quota exceeded
If this error occurs, increase the value of the SYSGEN parameter MAXBUF.
2.22 Cannot Start Queue for PrintServer Printer
Because of a CPAP protocol bug in some versions of DIGITAL PrintServer
Software, DCPS symbionts can be given a badly formatted packet in response to
a resource query. The bad packet prevents a symbiont from starting.
The problem is triggered by loading enough resources to require more than one
packet describing the resources loaded to be returned. The suggested workaround
is to load fewer resources. Empirical testing has found the limit to be 7 fonts.
This problem is fixed in version S5.0-29 and later of the PrintServer Software.

3.1 DCPS Processes Consume Memory and Pagefile
Over time, DCPS print symbiont processes may consume increasing amounts
of memory and pagefile space, resulting in system performance problems. This
problem is seen only on OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2 systems.
The following DECthreads patch kit fixes this problem:
•
VMS712_PTHREADS-V0300, for OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2 systems
3.2 Problems Starting Queues with Multistreamed Symbionts
All sites running DECprint Supervisor as a multistreamed process on OpenVMS
V7.1 and earlier should install the Queue Manager Remedial Update.
The Queue Manager remedial update kits are:
•
ALPQMAN02_071, for OpenVMS Alpha V7.1 systems
•
ALPQMAN05_070, for OpenVMS Alpha V7.0 systems
•
ALPQMAN03_062, for OpenVMS Alpha V6.2 systems

•
VAXQMAN03_070, for OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 through V6.1 systems
This update corrects problems that cause the START/QUEUE command to hang
under certain circumstances when operating with a multistreamed symbiont.
The release notes provided with the kit describe all the problems fixed by this
update. After installing this update, you need to reboot your system to enable
these changes.
Other Restrictions that Affect DCPS 3–1
If this update is not installed you may encounter the following problem. If a
queue running in a multistreamed process is stopped with STOP/QUEUE/RESET,
then quickly started with START/QUEUE, it is possible that the start request
will hang. In addition, sometimes the following message will be written to
OPCOM:
%DCPS-F-STREAMUSE, Request 4 for Stream Id x ignored.
Not consistent with symbiont state
To recover, issue a Ctrl/Y to return to the DCL prompt, then issue a
STOP/QUEUE/RESET again, wait a few seconds, and try to start the queue
again. To avoid this problem, install the queue manager update.
3.3 Problem Starting Queues for LAT- and Direct-Connected
Printers
There is an OpenVMS V7.0 terminal driver problem that may hinder you in
using DCPS with LAT- and direct-connected printers. The symptom is that
the associated queue cannot be started, with messages like the following being
written to OPCOM:
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 31-OCT-1995 21:53:55.73 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user SYSTEM on FUNYET
Queue SYS$PRINT: %DCPS-E-UNSUPPORTED, unsupported operation or
function
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 31-OCT-1995 21:53:55.74 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user QUEUE_MANAGE on FUNYET
%QMAN-I-QUENOTSTART, queue SYS$PRINT could not be started on node
FUNYET
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 31-OCT-1995 21:53:55.74 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user QUEUE_MANAGE on FUNYET
-SYSTEM-F-ABORT, abort
The failure may be constant or intermittent. If you subsequently attempt to start
the queue, you may succeed.
The following patch kits fix this problem:
•
ALPTTDR01_070, for OpenVMS Alpha V7.0 systems
•
VAXTTDR01_070, for OpenVMS VAX V7.0 systems
3.4 I/O Errors for Serially-Connected Printers
There is an OpenVMS terminal driver problem that may result in your printer
reporting I/O problems when connected to a serial port of your OpenVMS system.
You may see the problem with OpenVMS Alpha V6.2 through V7.0, and with
OpenVMS VAX V5.5 through V7.0, depending in part on what kind of serial port
you are using.
The problem is that the terminal driver sometimes does not respond quickly
enough to an XOFF request from the printer to prevent the printer from losing
data.
This problem is fixed in OpenVMS Alpha V7.1.
The following patch kits fix this problem:
•
ALPOPDR02_070, for OpenVMS Alpha V7.0 systems
•
ALPOPDR04_062, for OpenVMS Alpha V6.2 systems
3–2 Other Restrictions that Affect DCPS
3.5 Symbiont Aborts with Insufficient Dynamic Memory Error
There is a DECthreads problem on OpenVMS VAX V7.0 and V7.1 systems that
results in the DCPS symbiont aborting with an INSFMEM error. The DCPS
symbiont consumes an increasing amount of memory over time, eventually
aborting when it attempts to obtain more than the available dynamic memory.
The probability of the symbiont aborting increases with each new print job that it
processes.
The following patch kits fix this problem:
•
VAXCMAR01_071, for OpenVMS VAX V7.1 systems
•
VAXCMAR01_070, for OpenVMS VAX V7.0 systems
3.6 Symbionts Aborts with Access Violation or Bad Parameter
Error
The DCPS symbiont can abort with an ACCVIO or BADPARAM error, possibly
also indicating the CMA (DECthreads) facility, beginning 19 May 1997. Other
software on your system, including DIGITAL TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS and
anything layered upon DECthreads, may also fail after this date.
The problem is related to a long-standing OpenVMS restriction of fewer
than 10,000 days in a delta-time value. POSIX-related software in
particular, using the UNIX reference date of 1 January 1970, can encounter
this limit on and after 19 May 1997. Refer to the OpenVMS web pages
(http://www.openvms.compaq.com) for more information about the ‘‘Delta-Time
Limit’’.
The following patch kits fix this problem:
•
ALPLIBR07_070, for OpenVMS Alpha V6.1 to V7.0 systems
•
VAXLIBR06_070, for OpenVMS VAX V5.5 to V7.0 systems

Printer-Specific Information
The following sections provide information about using DCPS with specific
printers. The DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s Guide
and DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS User’s Guide contain additional
printer-specific information.
4.1 HP LaserJet 2100
4.1.1 Media Size Not Selectable
The HP LaserJet 2100 printer cannot detect the size of paper in its trays.
Therefore, the following restrictions apply when using DCPS with this printer:
•
It is not possible to select media by paper size.
•
If paper of a different size than the default is loaded in a tray, its size will be
considered as the default size. For example, if the default printer paper size
is letter, a legal-size document will be truncated to letter size when printing
on legal size paper.
To avoid printing on the wrong size paper, set the tray with the default paper size
"unlocked" and set all other trays "locked".
4.2 HP LaserJet 4050
4.2.1 Minimum Firmware Version
To use an HP LaserJet 4050 printer, it is recommended that the printer be
running a minimum firmware version of 19991030 MB6.30. Earlier versions of
firmware may cause problems such as misprinted or missing characters when
using the DCPS ANSI translator, especially when printing jobs with landscape
orientation or NUMBER_UP. This firmware version number is displayed as
Firmware Datecode on the printer’s configuration page.
If your printer is running an older version of firmware, contact HP and request
the proper version. The new firmware will be sent on a SIMM to be installed in
your printer.
4.3 HP LaserJet 8100 and 8150
4.3.1 Optional Mailbox
DCPS numbers the optional mailbox bins on the HP LaserJet 8000 printer from
1-5, 1-7 or 1-8, depending on the particular option installed. This is consistent
with the numbers molded into the plastic beside the bins. The printer’s console,
in contrast, refers to these same bins as numbers two through nine. Refer to the
HP LaserJet User Guide for your printer model for more information about the
numbering and purpose of trays with different options and configurations.
Printer-Specific Information 4–1
4.3.2 Problems Starting Queues
Some models in this series may not allow DCPS jobs to start. To resolve
this, either set the printer to PostScript mode or suppress DCPS’s PostScript
synchronization. See Section 15.2.11 in these Release Notes or the DECprint
Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s Guide for more information.
4.4 Lexmark Optra S and T Series
4.4.1 Problems Starting Queues
Some models in the Lexmark Optra S and Optra T series may not allow DCPS
jobs to start. To resolve this, either set the printer to PostScript mode or suppress
DCPS’s PostScript synchronization. See Section 15.2.11 in these Release Notes
or the DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s Guide for more
information.

information for several of these changes elsewhere in these release notes.
5.1 DCPS Version 1.8 Changes
5.1.1 New Printer Support
DCPS V1.8 adds support for the following printers:
GENICOM LN21
GENICOM LN28
GENICOM LNM40
GENICOM microLaser 170
GENICOM microLaser 210
GENICOM microLaser 280
GENICOM microLaser 320

HP LaserJet 8000
Lexmark Optra S 1625
Lexmark Optra S 1855
Tektronix Phaser 780
You can find more information in Chapter 4 of these release notes.
5.1.2 Some DCPS Stapling Restrictions Removed
DCPS supports the stapling option on the LN32, LNM40, mL320 and mL401
printers.
In DCPS V1.7-1, you could not automatically staple jobs containing more than
one file. Starting with DCPS V1.8, jobs with multiple files will be automatically
stapled if requested.
In DCPS V1.7-1, you could not automatically staple PCL jobs. Starting with
DCPS V1.8, PCL files will be automatically stapled if requested. If stapling
is requested, PCL files will be translated to PostScript using the DCPS PCL4
translator, rather than being interpreted by the printer’s native PCL interpreter.
If your PCL file contains any PCL escape sequences introduced after PCL4, the
sequences will be ignored.
Refer to DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS User’s Guide for information about
using the stapling option from DCPS.
5.2 DCPS Version 1.8 Fixes
The following problems are fixed in DCPS V1.8.
DCPS Version 1.8 Information 5–1
5.2.1 Symbiont Aborts When IP Names Are Used
When using DCPS V1.7-1 or earlier with DIGITAL TCP/IP Services for
OpenVMS, V5.0, on Alpha systems, the DCPS print symbiont could abort
when the TCP/IP host name for a printer was resolved to an address by a DNS
server. This problem did not occur with TCP/IP Services V5.0 on VAX systems,
or with TCP/IP Services V4.2 or earlier. This problem has also been resolved in
Compaq TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS, V5.1.

5.2.2 Delays and Errors with Raw TCP/IP Print Jobs
With some printers, including the LN32, LNM40, mL320 and mL401, DCPS
sometimes paused for five to ten seconds between jobs when using a raw TCP/IP
connection. The following error message would often appear before the delay:
%DCPS-W-NOT_READY, Printer is not ready
With some printers, including the LN20, LN40 and LNC02, DCPS would return
the message:
%DCPS-W-OFFLINE, Print Engine has gone off line
when starting a job if the printer was in Energy Saving mode.
5–2 DCPS Version 1.8 Information
5.2.3 ANSI GSS Sequence Could Cause Symbiont Crash
When using the ANSI GSS escape sequence with a parameter of zero, the ANSI
translator would crash and cause the print queue to stop. For example, the
sequence:
<CSI><SP>C
would cause DCPS to crash with the following error messages:
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 3-DEC-1999 11:48:09.85 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user SYSTEM on RT495

PC=0000000000000000, PS=00000000
5.2.4 Incorrectly Coded Font Causes Font Listings to Fail
When requesting a list of fonts from some printers, including the LN32 and
LNM40, the list would either not print or fail with a PostScript error. This
would occur if a DCPS ANSI print job had been printed on the printer since
the last time it was powered on. ANSI fonts created by DCPS have been fixed
so that such font lists, including those produced using the printer’s console
and user-written PostScript programs that inquire about font information, now
succeed.
5.2.5 Layup Usage and Printer Errors Can Cause Memory Leaks
DCPS symbiont processes would sometimes use increasing amounts of memory
over time when you used layup files. This also occurred rarely for certain printer
error messages.
Also see Chapter 3 for information about a memory leak in OpenVMS Alpha
V7.1-2.
DCPS Version 1.8 Information 5–3

DCPS Version 1.7-1 Information
This section describes changes included in DCPS V1.7-1. You can find more
information for several of these changes elsewhere in these release notes.
6.1 DCPS Version 1.7-1 Changes
6.1.1 New Printer Support
DCPS V1.7-1 adds support for the following printers:
Compaq Laser Printer LNC02
Compaq Laser Printer LNM40
The Compaq Laser Printer LNC02 is equivalent to the DIGITAL Laser Printer
LNC02. References in the DCPS documentation to the DIGITAL Laser Printer
LNC02 also apply to the Compaq Laser Printer LNC02.
You can find more information in Chapter 4 of these release notes.
6.1.2 Support for Stapling on LN32 and LNM40
DCPS V1.7-1 adds support for the optional stapling feature of the Compaq Laser
Printer LN32 and LNM40. Refer to DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS User’s
Guide for information about using the stapling option from DCPS.
6.1.3 Support for Process Software TCPware for OpenVMS Software
DCPS now supports your use of TCPware from Process Software in addition to
DIGITAL TCP/IP Services and Process Software MultiNet software to provide IP
connectivity. TCPware V5.3 or later is supported.
6.2 DCPS Version 1.7-1 Fixes
The following problems are fixed in DCPS V1.7-1.
6.2.1 Selecting LN32 Mailbox Causes Error
When the Compaq Laser Printer LN32 was set to jog (offset) output, selecting a
mailbox as an output tray caused the print job to fail with the error:
%DCPS-E-OUTTRAYNOTAVL, No MAILBOX_n tray is installed on printer_name
where n is the number of the mailbox tray selected and printer_name is the name
of the printer.
DCPS jobs can now be sent to any mailbox regardless of the printer’s
JOB OFFSET setting.
DCPS Version 1.7-1 Information 6–1
6.2.2 Selecting Paper Size FOLIO Causes Error
Starting with DCPS V1.6, selecting paper size FOLIO would result in the job
failing with one of the following error messages:
%DCPS-E-PARSYNERR, Syntax error in the /PARAMETERS qualifier at or near PAGE_SIZE=FOLIO
%DCPS-E-PARSYNERR, Syntax error in the /PARAMETERS qualifier at or near SHEET_SIZE=FOLIO
6–2 DCPS Version 1.7-1 Information
7
DCPS Version 1.7 Information
This section describes changes included in DCPS V1.7. You can find more
information for several of these changes elsewhere in these release notes.
7.1 DCPS Version 1.7 Changes
7.1.1 OpenVMS V7.2 and Extended File Specifications Supported
Systems running OpenVMS Alpha or VAX V7.2 are supported by DCPS. DCPS
V1.7 provides default support for systems with Extended File Specifications,
including ODS-5 volumes and deep directories.
Any file in any directory on an ODS-5 volume can be printed. The file name
may be truncated on file separator pages and in the heading when printing with
the LIST translator. If the file name is truncated, it is so indicated with an
ellipsis (...).
7.1.2 New Printer Support
DCPS V1.7 adds support for the following printers:
Compaq Laser Printer LN32
HP LaserJet 4000
HP LaserJet 5000
Lexmark Optra S 1620
Lexmark Optra S 2420
You can find more information in Chapter 4 of these release notes.
7.1.3 TCP/IP Jobs Terminate with BADPARAMS Error
Under certain conditions, jobs printed over TCP/IP would terminate, the queue
would stop and a message similar to the following would be sent to OPCOM:
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 25-FEB-1998 17:09:53.38 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user SYSTEM on HUMANE
Queue LN32_LAB: %DCPS-F-BADPARAM, bad parameter value
Changes to eliminate this problem under some conditions were made in DCPS
V1.6-1. Additional changes have been made in DCPS V1.7 to eliminate this
problem when DCPS is establishing a network connection to a printer.
DCPS Version 1.7 Information 7–1
8
DCPS Version 1.6-1 Information
This section describes changes included in DCPS V1.6-1. You can find more
information for several of these changes elsewhere in these release notes.
8.1 DCPS Version 1.6-1 Changes
8.1.1 ISO Latin-9 Character Set Added to ANSI Translator
Support for the ISO Latin-9 (ISO 8859-15) character set has been added to the
DCPS ANSI translator. This character set includes the Euro symbol.
One way to print the Euro symbol is to include the following ANSI escape
sequences in your ANSI file:
<ESC>.b
<ESC>n$
selects ISO Latin-9 character set
prints Euro symbol
In order to add the ISO Latin-9 character set, the DCPS ANSI translator has
been updated. If you are upgrading to DCPS V1.6-1 or later from a previous
version and want to print characters from the ISO Latin-9 character set, you
must power cycle your printer(s) after upgrading DCPS. This needs to be done
only once.
8.1.2 New Printer Support
DCPS V1.6-1 adds support for the Compaq Laser Printer LN16.
You can find more information in Chapter 4 of these release notes.
8.2 DCPS Version 1.6-1 Fixes
The following problems are fixed in DCPS V1.6-1.
8.2.1 TCP/IP Jobs Terminate with BADPARAMS Error
Under certain conditions, especially on a busy or slow network, jobs printed over
TCP/IP would terminate, the queue would stop and a message similar to the
following would be sent to OPCOM:
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 25-FEB-1998 17:09:53.38 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user SYSTEM on HUMANE
Queue LN32_LAB: %DCPS-F-BADPARAM, bad parameter value
DCPS Version 1.6-1 Information 8–1
8.2.2 Printing VFC Files Causes Access Violation
Starting with DCPS V1.6, printing a VFC file sometimes caused the DCPS print
symbiont to fail with an OPCOM message similar to the following:
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 7-JAN-1999 14:47:04.60 %%%%%%%%%%%

DCPS Version 1.6 Information
This section describes changes included in DCPS V1.6. You can find more
information for several of these changes elsewhere in these release notes.
9.1 DCPS Version 1.6 Changes
9.1.1 OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 and V6.0 Systems Supported
DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS is now supported on systems running
OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 or later. DCPS V1.4 and V1.5 require a minimum
operating system version for VAX systems of OpenVMS VAX V6.1.
The DEC C/C++ Run-Time Components kit must be installed before installing
DCPS on an OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 or V6.0 system. See the DECprint Supervisor
for OpenVMS Software Installation Guide for more information.
9.1.2 New Printer Support
DCPS V1.6 adds support for the following printers:
DIGITAL Laser Printer LNC02
DIGITAL Laser Printer LN15+
You can find more information in Chapter 4 of these release notes.
9.1.3 New Paper Sizes
DCPS supports several new paper sizes, as listed in the table below. You can
specify these sizes as the logical PAGE_SIZE value for any printer, and as the
physical SHEET_SIZE value for the LNC02 printer.
Size Name
Size (mm)
Size (inches)
FOOLSCAP
SPFOLIO
UKQUARTO
203 x 330
216 x 315
203 x 254
8.0 x 13.0
8.5 x 12.4
8.0 x 10.0
9.2 DCPS Version 1.6 Fixes
The following problems are fixed in DCPS V1.6.
9.2.1 Every Page Is Offset on LN40
If the Offset Stacking feature of the DIGITAL Laser Printer LN40 was enabled
from the printer’s console, DCPS jobs would print with each page offset from the
previous page. This problem is fixed, with the following restrictions:
•
If a SHEET_COUNT parameter value greater than 1 is specified, job and file
separator pages are printed offset from the user job. In addition, the copies of
each page of your job are offset from the copies of the previous page.
DCPS Version 1.6 Information 9–1
•
If your document was produced on a PC or contains PostScript commands
specifying the number of copies to print, you may not get the desired jogging
or copy behavior that you expect. For example, you may only get a single
copy of your document, you may get collated copies that are offset from each
other, or the job’s trailer page (if any) may be printed after the first copy of
your document.
To avoid these restrictions, use the /COPIES or /JOB_COUNT qualifiers with
your PRINT command rather than the SHEET_COUNT parameter. Also, do
not specify a copy count other than 1 when producing a document on a PC.
•
If the printer’s Collation setting is off, the first DCPS job printed after the
LN40 has been powered on will print with each page offset from the previous
page. There is no workaround for this problem.
9.2.2 VFC Files Consume Excessive CPU Time
Starting with DCPS V1.1, printing VFC-formatted files consumed significantly
more CPU time than printing similar non-VFC files. VFC printing performance
has been improved so that printing VFC files uses approximately the same
amount of time as printing non-VFC files.
9.2.3 Layup Files Installed in Incorrect Directory
When installing DCPS on a system on which DCPS was not running, you
were asked where to put DCPS layup files. If you chose a location other than
the default, DCPS would define the layup logical name DCPS$LAYUP to this
alternate location, but the layup files would be moved to the default location.
DCPS now validates the location you specify and installs the layup files in that
location.
9.2.4 LN20 13x19 Paper Tray Not Selectable
When printing to 13x19 (Universal) paper on the DIGITAL Laser Printer LN20,
specifying the INPUT_TRAY parameter would cause the job to fail. Specifying
the PAPER_SIZE parameter without also specifying INPUT_TRAY would print
correctly.
For example, the following command:
$ PRINT /PARAMETERS=INPUT_TRAY=MULTIPURPOSE MY-RESUME.PS
would return the error message:
%DCPS-F-UNKPAPSIZE, Unknown papersize in selected tray, cannot print job
-DCPS-I-JOB_ID, for job MY-RESUME (queue SYS$PRINT, entry 27) on LN20
and the following command:
$ PRINT /PARAMETERS=(INPUT_TRAY=MULTIPURPOSE,PAGE_SIZE=13X19) MY-RESUME.PS
would return the error message:
%DCPS-E-SIZNOTRAY, 13x19 size medium is not in the multipurpose tray in LN20.
-DCPS-I-JOB_ID, for job MY-RESUME (queue SYS$PRINT, entry 29) on LN20
%DCPS-E-FLUSHING, Rest of Job (to EOJ) will be ignored
9–2 DCPS Version 1.6 Information
9.2.5 Symbiont Aborts with Internal Error
Under some conditions, especially when the user deleted a currently printing job,
the DCPS symbiont would fail. The resulting OPCOM message would be similar
to the following:
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 22-JAN-1997 15:02:28.11 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user SYSTEM on ZIPPY
Process SYMBIONT_21: %DCPS-F-INTERNAL_ERROR, Internal error detected
at line 427 of file DCPS$:[BUILD.V13]DP_STMGT.C;1,
Invalid state change, cannot continue

DCPS Version 1.5-2 Information
10.1 DCPS Version 1.5-2 Fixes
This section lists problems that have been corrected in DCPS V1.5-2.
10.1.1 No Job Is Printed if Output Tray Is Specified
If you specified the OUTPUT_TRAY parameter with DCPS V1.5-1, DCPS would
not produce any printed output for your job. If you also specified the NOTIFY
qualifier, you would see error messages similar to the following on your screen:
Job MY-FILE (queue MY_QUEUE, entry 330) started on MY_QUEUE
$
%DCPS-I-JOBSTART, Job MY-FILE (queue SYS$PRINT, entry 330) started on MY_QUEUE
$
%DCPS-W-UNDEF, undefined: Name not known - offending command is $
-DCPS-I-JOB_ID, for job MY-FILE (queue SYS$PRINT, entry 330) on MY_QUEUE

DCPS Version 1.5-1 Information
11.1 DCPS Version 1.5-1 Highlights
DECprint Supervisor Version 1.5-1 adds support for the DIGITAL Laser Printer
LN20.
You can find more information about this printer in Chapter 4 of these release
notes.
11.2 DCPS Version 1.5-1 Fixes
This section lists problems that have been corrected in DCPS V1.5-1.
11.2.1 Colorwriter LSR 2000 Jobs Remain in Starting State
When attempting to print to the Colorwriter LSR 2000 printer with DCPS V1.5,
the job would remain in a starting state and never print.
11.2.2 CONFIDENTIAL Does Not Appear When Using LAYUP or NUMBER_UP
If you specified the LAYUP or NUMBER_UP parameter when printing the
DCPS example file CONFIDENTIAL.PS with DCPS V1.4 or later, the word
"CONFIDENTIAL" would not appear on the output.
11.3 DCPS Version 1.5-1 Changes
This section describes changes made in DCPS V1.5-1.
11.3.1 New Paper Sizes
DCPS now supports the 12x19.5 inch (864x1404 mm) and 13x19 inch (936x1368
mm) paper sizes. You can specify 12X19.5 or 13X19 as the logical PAGE_SIZE
value for any printer, and as the physical SHEET_SIZE value for the LN20
printer. Note that the LN20 console and documentation refer to the 12x19.5 and
13x19 paper sizes as 12x19 and Universal respectively.
DCPS Version 1.5-1 Information 11–1
12
DCPS Version 1.5 Information
12.1 DCPS Version 1.5 Highlights
DECprint Supervisor Version 1.5 adds support for the following printers:
DIGITAL Laser Printer LN15
DIGITAL Laser Printer LN17+ps
DIGITAL Laser Printer LN40
You can find more information about these printers in Chapter 4 of these release
notes.
12.2 DCPS Version 1.5 Fixes
This section lists problems that have been corrected in DCPS V1.5.
12.2.1 Printing ANSI Document with User-Defined Fonts Fails
When printing an ANSI document that contains a user-defined font, the print job
would sometimes fail. This problem has been corrected in DCPS V1.5.
12.3 DCPS Version 1.5 Changes
This section describes changes made in DCPS V1.5.
12.3.1 Sending ANSI Documents Using the DEClaser 3500 Fax Option
You can now fax ANSI documents using the DEClaser 3500 fax option, in
addition to previously supported PostScript and text files. Documents consisting
only of lines of printable ASCII characters can be sent as a text file following
the instructions in SYS$COMMON:[SYSHLP.EXAMPLES.DCPS]FAX_3500_
PRINTME.PS, or as an ANSI document as described in the DECprint Supervisor
for OpenVMS User’s Guide.
12.3.2 Cisco MultiNet Is Now Process Software MultiNet
The TCP/IP software product MultiNet has been sold by Cisco Systems,
Incorporated to Process Software Corporation. References to Cisco MultiNet will
be changed to Process Software MultiNet as DCPS documentation is revised.
DCPS Version 1.5 Information 12–1
13
DCPS Version 1.4 Information
13.1 DCPS Version 1.4 Highlights
The following list provides a brief description of the significant changes included
in DECprint Supervisor Version 1.4. You can find more information for several of
these changes elsewhere in these release notes.
•
Communication with printers via Raw TCP/IP Sockets
•
Support for the following printers:
HP LaserJet 4MV
HP LaserJet 5M (monochrome version)
HP LaserJet 5SiMX
Lexmark Optra Rt+
•
Automatic stopping and restarting of active DCPS queues during installation
•
Support for Process Software MultiNet for OpenVMS Software for IP
connectivity
•
Revised hardcopy documentation
•
A minimum supported OpenVMS version of 6.1
13.2 DCPS Version 1.4 Fixes
This section lists problems that have been corrected in DCPS V1.4.
13.2.1 Only One Bin Gets a Separator Page if Collating Without
OUTPUT_TRAY
If the default output tray for the LN17ps was set to the collator and a SHEET_
COUNT=n parameter for the print job was specified without also specifying the
OUTPUT_TRAY=xxx parameter, only one copy of any separator page (job burst,
flag, or trailer page) would be generated. Further, such pages would be delivered
to random bins.
13.2.2 LN17ps Printer Hangs in Processing State
When the LN17ps collator was specified as the default output tray and the input
tray was MANUAL_FEED, the printer would hang when the specified SHEET_
COUNT was greater than one.
This error occurred most often while printing trailer pages.
On some occasions, a blank data sheet was sent to the collator just prior to the
printer hanging.
This problem is attributed to both a bug in the LN17ps printer and in DCPS V1.3.
With the DCPS V1.4 fix, you are unlikely to see this problem.
DCPS Version 1.4 Information 13–1
13.2.3 Output May Be Clipped on the LN17ps
Printer output on the LN17ps might have been clipped when the following
conditions were met:
•
you specified an INPUT_TRAY value of FRONT or MULTIPURPOSE
•
you specified a sheet size
•
the imageable area of the requested sheet size was larger than the consolespecified size for the manual tray
To avoid such clipping, use INPUT_TRAY=MANUAL_FEED.
When you specify an INPUT_TRAY value of FRONT or MULTIPURPOSE for the
LN17ps along with a sheet size, DCPS V1.4 now requires you to specify the sheet
size that matches the console-specified manual size.
13.2.4 Erroneous TRAYSUBST Messages
Erroneous DCPS-I-TRAYSUBST messages may have occurred for specific output
trays for the following printers:
Printer
Output Tray
Substitution Reported
LN17ps
LN17ps
LPS17
LPS32
LPS40
Top
Upper
LCOS
LCOS
LCOS
OCT
OCT

The correct tray was selected even though the erroneous TRAYSUBST message
was issued.
13.2.5 Required Device Control Module Not Found for PrintServer Printers
If the first job submitted to a DIGITAL PrintServer printer contained an invalid
parameter, a ‘‘Required device control module LPS$$INITPSDEVICE not found’’
error message was issued and the print queue stopped. This error occurred only
if the first job printed contained an invalid parameter.
This error did not occur with desktop printers.
13.2.6 Erroneous Connection Termination Error for DEClaser 5100
DCPS was unable to communicate with the DEClaser 5100 via the NIC card, and
would instead consistently fail with CONTERMINATED errors.
This problem was erroneously believed to have been fixed in DCPS V1.3, as
reported in Section 14.2.2.
13.2.7 PrintServer Printer Hangs When Network Connection Is Lost and Jobs
Are Pending
A DCPS print queue could hang when all the following conditions were true:
•
A DCPS print job was pending (that is, not the current job) on the DIGITAL
PrintServer printer
•
The DCPS to PrintServer printer interconnect was TCP/IP
•
The network connection to the PrintServer printer was lost
13–2 DCPS Version 1.4 Information
This was fixed in DCPS V1.4 by enabling the KEEPALIVE option for such
TCP/IP connections. However, if your system is configured for unusually
long KEEPALIVE timeouts, you may continue to see this problem. If so,
you may recover by deleting the job (DELETE/ENTRY) or stoping the queue
(STOP/QUEUE/RESET).
13.2.8 Problems with VFC Files Containing Large Control Fields
If you printed a VFC-formatted file that utilized a fixed-length control field larger
than two (2) bytes, the DCPS symbiont could abort with an access violation
(ACCVIO) or other error.
13.2.9 ANSI Text Not Wrapped Properly When Using a Form
If you printed ANSI text with a form that specified the /WRAP qualifier, the
input records were sometimes broken into output line segments that exceeded the
usable line width implied by the form.
13.3 DCPS Version 1.4 Changes
This section describes changes made in DCPS V1.4.
13.3.1 Support for Raw TCP/IP Connections
DCPS V1.4 adds the ability to communicate with printers via raw TCP/IP sockets.
Raw TCP is a network protocol that utilizes the TCP/IP protocol directly without
any additional interpretation of the TCP data stream. It is supported by many
printer Network Interface Cards (NICs), print servers, and terminal servers.
Table A–1 lists commonly-used raw TCP/IP port numbers.
There are other printer protocols that layer upon TCP/IP, including CPAP
(Common Printer Access Protocol), LPD, and Telnet. DCPS uses CPAP to
communicate with DIGITAL PrintServer printers. DCPS does not support LPD
or Telnet.
To communicate with your printer using raw TCP/IP, the NIC, print server or
terminal server that you use to connect your printer to the network must provide
a raw TCP/IP port. Further, this raw TCP/IP port must support bidirectional
communication between the printer and your OpenVMS system. DCPS does not
work with unidirectional ports, such as those found on the NICs for the DEClaser
3500 and 5100 printers, the RapidPrint 200 and 500, and HP JetDirect cards that
interface with the printer via its XIO (versus MIO) slot.
For more information about raw TCP/IP connections and creating queues that
utilize them, refer to the DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s
Guide and comments in DCPS$STARTUP.COM.
13.3.2 ‘‘IP_CPAP’’ Replaces ‘‘TCPIP’’ Connection Type
In previous DCPS versions, a ‘‘tcpip/...’’ syntax was used in DCPS$STARTUP.COM
to specify communication with a DIGITAL PrintServer printer via TCP/IP.
In DCPS V1.4, a new ‘‘ip_cpap/...’’ syntax is introduced to replace the ‘‘tcpip/...’’
syntax. CPAP (Common Printer Access Protocol) is the network protocol
supported by DIGITAL PrintServer printers, and is just one of many TCP/IP
printer-related network protocols. The ‘‘tcpip/...’’ syntax is no longer recommended
because of its ambiguity, though DCPS continues to support it.
DCPS Version 1.4 Information 13–3
13.3.3 Automatic Stopping and Restarting of Queues During Installation
When you begin the installation of DCPS, the software scans for existing queues
and notes which ones are ‘‘active’’. Active queues are ones that are not stopped
(for example, idle, busy, etc.).
If any active queues are found, their names and status are displayed, and you are
then asked to decide if the installation procedure should automatically stop and
later restart them.
If you do not want the installation procedure to automatically stop them, you
are given the options of aborting the installation or continuing with the queues
active. Continuing is NOT recommended.
If you choose to allow the installation procedure to stop the active queues it listed,
it does so after all other installation questions are asked.
If the installation is successful, the listed queues are restarted after the IVP runs.
If the installation aborts, is interrupted, etc., they are NOT restarted.
13.3.4 Support for Process Software MultiNet for OpenVMS Software
DCPS now supports your use of either DIGITAL TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS
software or Process Software MultiNet for OpenVMS software to provide IP
connectivity. In DCPS versions V1.3 and earlier, only the former was supported.
Refer to the DECprint Supervisor SPD for more information and specific version
requirements.
13.3.5 New Paper Sizes
DCPS supports several new paper sizes, as listed in the table below. You can
specify these new sizes as the logical PAGE_SIZE value for any printer, and as
the physical SHEET_SIZE value for the printers listed below.
Size Name
Size (mm)
Size (inches)

11.7 x 17
Lexmark Optra Rt+
HP4MV, HP5SiMX
HP4MV, HP5SiMX
13.3.6 Device Control Modules Changed for All Printers
The device control modules for all printers were changed, to reduce negative
interactions with PC- and Macintosh-generated files. This was done primarily
by changing the way in which DCPS uses PostScript dictionaries in the printer.
However, if your applications place many definitions in PostScript’s ‘‘userdict’’
dictionary, it is possible that these changes may have a negative impact on your
print jobs.
The four device control modules for ‘‘unrecognized’’ printers were also
changed. If you made any changes to previous versions of these Compaqsupplied modules, you may need to rework your changes. See the DECprint
Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s Guide and comments in the
LPS$$UNRECOGNIZED_* modules for more information.
13–4 DCPS Version 1.4 Information
13.3.7 Support for Indexed and Relative Files
DCPS now allows you to print files that utilize an indexed, relative, or
sequential file organization. In DCPS versions V1.1 through V1.3, you received a
BADFILEORG error if you attempted to print an indexed or relative file.
Indexed and relative files are accessed sequentially, by their primary index and
relative record number respectively. This new capability is consistent with the
TYPE command.
Note
Indexed and relative files frequently contain binary data. Attempting to
print files containing such unprintable binary data can give unpredictable
and probably undesirable results.
13.3.8 ALL-IN-1 Compatibility Kit Removed
The ALL-IN-1 compatibility kit, and the option to install it, is no longer part of
the DCPS kit for OpenVMS VAX systems. The ALL-IN-1 product now provides
the printer support that was provided by the compatibility kit in earlier versions
of DCPS.
The compatibility kit was never necessary for OpenVMS Alpha systems.
13.3.9 DCPS User Card Removed
The DCPS kit no longer includes a User Card, either in hardcopy format or
online. If you installed a previous version of DCPS, the online version of this
card (SYS$COMMON:[SYSHLP.EXAMPLES.DCPS]DCPS-USER-CARD.PS) will
exist in the DCPS examples directory. The information on the card is still correct,
though no longer complete.
DCPS Version 1.4 Information 13–5
14
DCPS Version 1.3 Information
14.1 DCPS Version 1.3 Highlights
The following list provides a brief description of the significant changes included
in DECprint Supervisor Version 1.3. You can find more information for several of
these changes elsewhere in these release notes.
•
Support for the DIGITAL LN17ps High Performance Network Printer,
utilizing either the LAT or Appletalk interface.
•
Support for the DIGITAL Colorwriter LSR 2000 printer, utilizing the
Appletalk interface.
•
Fixes for some problems in previous versions of DCPS.
•
Other changes from previous versions.
14.2 DCPS Version 1.3 Fixes
This section lists problems that have been corrected in DCPS V1.3.
14.2.1 Repeated Messages for Queue with Invalid LAT Device
A DCPS queue started with autostart would repeatedly display the following
message when the associated LTA device was incorrectly defined:
%DCPS-F-LRJNAMEUNKNOWN, Port name is unknown
14.2.2 Erroneous Connection Termination Error for DEClaser 5100
DCPS was unable to communicate with the DEClaser 5100 via the NIC card, and
would instead consistently fail with CONTERMINATED errors.
14.2.3 Queue Stalls Indefinitely While Printing End of Document
A DCPS queue would sometimes go into a Stalled state while or just before
printing the last sheet of a document, and would never resume printing.
14.2.4 DCPS Installation Repeatedly Gets %DCL-W-SYMOVF Errors
When the DCPS installation procedure scanned for existing DCPS print queues,
it would repeatedly generate the error message shown below if your system
contained a logical name (for example, SYS$PRINT) and a queue name that were
identical. The installation would never complete, and you would have to abort it
by typing Ctrl/Y.
%DCL-W-SYMOVF, no room for symbol definitions - delete some symbols
DCPS Version 1.3 Information 14–1
14.2.5 Symbiont Termination When All Message Fields Disabled
If the job controller was started with all message fields disabled, the DCPS
symbiont would terminate with a %STR-F-STRTOOLON message whenever it
attempted to generate a -DCPS-I-JOB_ID message containing additional job
identification information. A message similar to the following would be sent to
OPCOM:
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 21-MAR-1996 20:28:01.70 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user SYSTEM on DANTOO
Process SYMBIONT_15: %F-STRTOOLON, string is too long (greater
than 65535)
Symbiont terminations caused by disabled message fields were erroneously
believed to have been completely fixed in DCPS V1.1, as reported in
Section 17.2.5.
14.2.6 Online Help Fixed and Expanded
Some minor errors in the PRINT_PARAMETERS online help were fixed. In
addition, online help about the LN17ps and Colorwriter LSR 2000 printers was
added.
14.2.7 Gray Bars from the LIST Translator Are More Visible
Gray bars generated by the LIST translator to highlight alternate groups of lines
are now more visible for the DEClaser 5100 printer at resolutions above 300x300
dpi and for the Apple LaserWriter IIg printer.
14.2.8 Automatic Scaling When Queue Has PAGE_SIZE and SHEET_SIZE
Parameters
DCPS now assumes an implicit NUMBER_UP=1 when all of the following
conditions exist:
•
The DCPS-PLUS license is installed.
•
Queue default parameters for both PAGE_SIZE and SHEET_SIZE have been
set to different sizes.
•
Your PRINT command does not specify these parameters:
•
–
PAGE_SIZE
–
SHEET_SIZE
–
INPUT_TRAY
NUMBER_UP and LAYUP_DEFINITION are not specified for the queue or in
your print command.
NUMBER_UP=1 scales the logical page size to fit on the physical sheet size. This
fix results in the same behavior as specifying different values for PAGE_SIZE
and SHEET_SIZE on the command line without specifying NUMBER_UP or
LAYUP_DEFINITION.
In previous versions of DCPS, the implicit scaling was assumed for command line
parameters but not for queue parameters. A workaround in those versions was to
include an explicit NUMBER_UP=1 with the queue parameters.
14–2 DCPS Version 1.3 Information
14.2.9 Job Log and Job Trailer Pages Sent to Specified Output Tray
The job log and job trailer pages, if any, are now normally directed to the output
tray you specified with the OUTPUT_TRAY parameter. However, if DCPS reports
a NOOUTTRAY, OUTTRAYNOTAVL, or OUTTRAYMISMATCH error when
initially attempting to select the specified output tray, the job log and trailer
pages are instead directed to the printer’s default output tray so that you get an
indication of the problem.
In previous versions of DCPS, the job log and trailer pages were always sent to
the printer’s default output tray for non-PrintServer printers. For example, it
was previously documented that use of OUTPUT_TRAY=FACE_UP for the HP
LaserJet 4SiMX printer would not direct the trailer page to the face-up output
tray. This restriction no longer exists.
14.3 DCPS Version 1.3 Changes
14.3.1 New C6 Paper Size
DCPS now supports the C6 (326x460 mm) paper size. You can specify C6 as the
logical PAGE_SIZE value for any printer, and as the physical SHEET_SIZE value
for the LN17ps printer.
14.3.2 Device Control Modules Changed for UNRECOGNIZED Printer
The four device control modules for ‘‘unrecognized’’ printers, as well as those for
other printers, were changed. If you made any changes to previous versions of
these Compaq-supplied modules, you may need to rework your changes. See the
DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s Guide and comments in
the LPS$$UNRECOGNIZED_* modules for more information.
DCPS Version 1.3 Information 14–3
15
DCPS Version 1.2 Information
This chapter describes the changes that are in Version 1.2 of the DECprint
Supervisor.
15.1 DCPS Version 1.2 Highlights
The following list provides a brief description of the significant changes included
in DECprint Supervisor Version 1.2. You can find more information for several of
these changes elsewhere in these release notes.
•
DCPS Version 1.2 requires less memory and pagefile space. This is achieved
by allowing a supervisor process to control multiple print queues (run
‘‘multistreamed’’). This allows a system to have far fewer DCPS supervisor
processes, and thus alleviates memory and pagefile consumption.
•
DCPS Version 1.2 reduces idle queue processor overhead by allowing
supervisor processes to control multiple print queues, thereby reducing the
number of supervisor processes and the overhead imposed by each.
•
DCPS now supports printing to printers on an AppleTalk network from
OpenVMS Alpha systems.
•
AppleTalk printer names may now be specified with 8-bit accented characters.
•
The ANSI translator has been fixed and no longer abnormally truncates lines
when printing with A4 page sizes in landscape orientation.
•
When printing to serial- and LAT-connected printers, DCPS is less aggressive
on job startup. Previously, DCPS could cause a print job from a UNIX host or
LATSYM to abort if the job had completed on that host, but was still printing
at the printer. DCPS now waits for the printer to stop printing before it
begins the new job. A new DCPS logical name can be defined to restore the
old behavior, if needed.
•
Previous versions of DCPS could hang, especially on AppleTalk connected
printers, if a job name contained the ‘‘]’’ character. This problem is corrected
in this release.
•
Under rare circumstances, DCPS V1.1 and V1.1A could exit with the
following message ‘‘%DCPS-F-INSEF, insufficient event flags’’. This problem
is corrected in this release.
•
New system logical names are now recognized for changing DCPS modes and
behaviors to other than the defaults.
•
The startup template command procedure, DCPS$STARTUP.TEMPLATE has
been updated to show how to configure the print supervisor for multistreamed
operation.
DCPS Version 1.2 Information 15–1
•
The kit installation procedure and IVP have been enhanced to check for and
report running DCPS queues and components that might cause unpredictable
behavior during an upgrade.
•
This release also contains several other corrections and minor enhancements
to the product.
15.2 DCPS Version 1.2 Fixes
This section describes problems that are fixed in DCPS Version 1.2.
15.2.1 Truncated Lines When A4 Page Is Printed Landscape
Beginning with Version V1.1A the ANSI translator used a modified definition of
the size of the printing area for an A4 page printed landscape. However, this new
definition sometimes caused lines to be abnormally truncated. This problem has
been fixed. See Section 16.1.2.
15.2.2 AppleTalk Printer Names with Multinational Characters
If an AppleTalk printer name includes multinational characters (for example,
accented characters), DCPS did not properly handle these names and could not
find the printer on the AppleTalk network. The characters supplied for the /ON
qualifer use the DECMCS character set. These characters had to be converted to
the Macintosh character set to be used on the AppleTalk network. With Version
1.2, this conversion now occurs.
When multinational characters are used, the printer name printed on the bottom
of separation pages may be printed in the wrong character set.
15.2.3 DELETE/ENTRY and ‘‘(DCc) Circuit connect failure’’
At apparently random times, it was possible for a PrintServer printer to display
the a ‘‘(DCc) Circuit connect failure’’ error and stop responding to print requests.
This problem occured as a result of a DELETE/ENTRY command if the job
number on the PrintServer printer was 100 or greater. DCPS now correctly
handles DELETE/ENTRY and no longer causes this error.
15.2.4 Speed of Printing of Certain File Types
Changes have be made to improve how files with variable length records are
handled by the symbiont. These changes can improve the speed at which these
files print.
15.2.5 Handling of Communications Problems on Serial Interconnect
In previous releases, there could be a delay of up to 4 minutes to free the
system resources associated with a serial device. This could occur when a
STOP/QUEUE/RESET command was issued when a job was printing, but a
communication problem had occurred. When such a delay occurred, the queue
could not be restarted soon after it had been stopped. Now when a communication
problem is detected, the system resources are freed more quickly, and a print
queue can be restarted soon after it is stopped.
15.2.6 DCPS$queuename_PID Logical Name and Startup Errors
With V1.1A, if a queue failed to start, the logical name DCPS$queuename_PID
would be left in the system logical name tables. This no longer occurs.
15–2 DCPS Version 1.2 Information
15.2.7 Looping When Handling Messages with ’]’ in Job: field
DCPS now properly handles PostScript printer messages with a ’]’ character in
the job name. Parsing such a message in previous versions would result in an
infinite loop. This was most likely to be noticed when printing to a printer on an
AppleTalk network.
15.2.8 Handling of Long Device Names in DCPS$STARTUP.COM
DCPS V1.1A did not properly account for the SCSNODE name when
determining the value for the /ON qualifier from the P2 value supplied to
DCPS$EXECUTION_QUEUE.COM by DCPS$STARTUP.COM. If the node’s
SCSNODE name was less then 6 characters, an error could occur when the queue
was started. This has been fixed.
15.2.9 Form Setup Modules and Multiple File Jobs
A setup module specified by the /SETUP qualifier of a form is sent to the printer
just once at the beginning of a print job if the setup module is PostScript. If the
job included multiple files or copies of a file, the PostScript context established
by this setup module could be lost and the rest of the files would not print as
expected. This happened because, when needed, DCPS sends the PostScript
’newsheet’ operator between files to ensure new files start on new sheets. The
PostScript context is now saved before executing ’newsheet’, and restored after
executing ’newsheet’.
15.2.10 Interrupting Busy Printers When a Job Starts
Previous versions of DCPS, when used with serially-connected printers, used an
aggressive synchronization sequence to gain control of the printer’s PostScript
interpreter. This is no longer the case, as it occasionally caused problems when a
printer was used in a shared multi-host environment.
However, if you rely on DCPS’s previous ability to abort errant PostScript
jobs on one queue by starting a job on another queue, you can define a DCPS
logical name to restore the previous functionality, as described in the DECprint
Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s Guide.
15.2.11 Suppressing PostScript Synchronization When a Job Starts
Defining the logical name DCPS$queuename_NO_SYNC causes the DCPS
symbiont to avoid using its usual synchronization sequence on printers other
than PrintServer printers. This includes printers that use LAT or raw TCP/IP
connections on built-in Network Interface Cards (NICs). It has no effect when
using printers connected via other interconnects. This logical name is supported
by Versions 1.2 and later of DCPS to help avoid problems that have been reported
in past versions.
15.2.12 DDIF Files with Invalid Parameter Values
The DDIF translators have been modified to handle files with invalid values
for some parameters. Specifically, if the value for either the ‘‘PixelPath’’ or
‘‘LineProgression’’ parameter is invalid, then the default value for that parameter
is assumed.
DCPS Version 1.2 Information 15–3
15.2.13 Insufficient Event Flags
Under some circumstances, DCPS V1.1 and V1.1A exits with the following
message:
%DCPS-F-INSEF, insufficient event flags
This problem might occur with LAT-connected printers when more than one host
attempts a connection to the printer at the same time. This problem is corrected
in Version 1.2.
15.2.14 PostScript Operator findfont Has Been Modified
The example file [SYSHLP.EXAMPLES.DCPS]PS_SUPPLEMENT.PS has been
changed. The re-definition of the PostScript operator ’findfont’ has been modified
to minimize naming conflicts with other definitions of the keyword ’findfont’.
Also, if PS_SUPPLEMENT.PS is loaded more than once, the ’findfont’ operator
is not re-defined, and previous problems due to recursion no longer occur. The
redefinition of the PostScript operator ’findfont’ has been modified to minimize
naming conflicts with other definitions of the keyword ’findfont’. Also, if PS_
SUPPLEMENT.PS is loaded more than once, the ’findfont’ operator is not
redefined, and previous problems due to recursion no longer occur.
15.2.15 OUTPUT_TRAY=LCOS Not Supported for PrintServer 17 Printers
You can now use the OUTPUT_TRAY=LCOS parameter to select the large
capacity output stacker on PrintServer 17 printers.
15.3 DCPS Version 1.2 Changes
This section describes changes in DCPS Version 1.2.
15.3.1 Running DECprint Supervisor as a Multistreamed Process
Beginning with Version 1.2, a DECprint Supervisor process is capable of running
as a multistreamed symbiont process.
15.3.2 AppleTalk Interconnect Supported on OpenVMS Alpha Systems
Printing to printers on an AppleTalk network from an OpenVMS Alpha
system is now supported. The AppleTalk for OpenVMS network software from
PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (Macintosh) V1.3 or later must be installed and
running.
15.3.3 DCPS Includes Files for the DEClaser 3500 FAX Option
DCPS includes example files for the the DEClaser 3500 printer’s FAX features.
15.3.4 The Network Printer Setup Utility Updated
The Network Printer Setup Utility has been updated. The kit can be found
in SYS$COMMON:[SYSHLP.EXAMPLES.DCPS.NETPRINT] in the file
NETPRX11.ZIP. The new version works with V5.0A and V5.1 of PATHWORKS for
OpenVMS (LAN Manager). This version of the Network Printer Setup Utility is
also supplied on the PATHWORKS Unsupported Utilities Kit.
15.3.5 Logical Name to Enable Device Control Library Caching
The system logical name DCPS$DEVCTL_CACHE (with no queue name specified)
can be defined to specify that device control library caching is enabled for all
DCPS print execution queues on that system. Also see Section 17.1.4.
15–4 DCPS Version 1.2 Information
15.3.6 DCPS$STARTUP.TEMPLATE Updated
The file SYS$STARTUP:DCPS$STARTUP.TEMPLATE has been modified
to provide example definitions for both DCPS$MAX_STREAMS and
DCPS$DEVCTL_CACHE.
15.3.7 Executable Components Check for Compatible Versions
Beginning with DCPS Version 1.2, the executable components attempt to ensure
they are a matched set. If a mis-match occurs, DCPS reports an error when the
queue starts.
15.3.8 Reducing the Amount of Memory and Idle Time CPU
DCPS V1.1 and V1.1A use considerably more memory than previous versions of
DCPS. This use of memory can become a significant problem when many DCPS
queues are started on a system. DCPS Version 1.2 and later address this problem
by reducing the peak memory requirements of DCPS and by allowing DCPS to
run multistreamed.
Also, beginning with DCPS V1.1, DECthreads is used to implement the numerous
functions of DCPS. All processes that use DECthreads execute periodically to
determine if any threads can run. Even when no jobs are printing, DECthreads
causes a DCPS process to run to determine if any threads can run. If there are
many DCPS queues started on a system, the scheduling and periodic execution
of all these processes can use a significant amount of CPU time. This problem
is resolved by running DCPS as a multistreamed process, thereby reducing the
number of symbiont processes that must execute. Also, DCPS symbiont processes
never get swapped out of memory because they periodically execute.
There are several factors to consider to determine an appropriate number of
queues per DCPS symbiont process including:
•
DCPS Version 1.2 must be configured to support at least four execution
queues to reduce the memory requirements to that of DCPS V1.0C.
•
You can reduce the number of process slots taken by DCPS by increasing the
number of queues per process. This will free up process slots. By reducing the
number of DCPS symbiont processes, you reduce the number of DECthread
processes that must run periodically, which improves system performance.
•
With Version 1.2 and later of DCPS, even though a DECprint Supervisor
process can be configured to support more than one execution queue, DCPS
can translate only one file at a time. To avoid contention for translators,
when a stream (queue) in a process needs a translator that is already in use,
the translator for that stream is started in a separate temporary process.
This can impact performance if your site primarily uses one translator, and
print queues are generally busy. To reduce the likelihood of a impact on
performance, choose a smaller value for DCPS$MAX_STREAMS.
•
The maximum number of queues per process is 32. This limit is imposed by
the OpenVMS queue manager.
•
If DCPS is configured to support only one print queue per process (the
default), DCPS Version 1.2 uses less memory than V1.1 or V1.1A, but more
memory than DCPS V1.0C.
•
A DECprint Supervisor process running multiple print queues represents a
potential single point of failure. If the supervisor process fails, or someone
stops the process, then several queues are affected.
DCPS Version 1.2 Information 15–5
16
DCPS Version 1.1A Information
This chapter describes fixes and changes that are new to DCPS V1.1A.
16.1 DCPS Version 1.1A Fixes
This section describes problems that are fixed in DCPS Version 1.1A.
16.1.1 Corrected Timeout Problem with LAT Protocol on Network Cards
A problem occurred on DCPS print queues connected to printers using the LAT
protocol on a network card. If the printer was turned off for a long period of time,
say for the night, and a job was submitted while the printer was off, the queue
would stop with a fatal timeout message. This behavior has been corrected and
printing will resume when the printer is turned on.
16.1.2 ANSI Translator Printing with A4 Landscape
All versions of the ANSI translator prior to DCPS V1.1A had a problem printing
66 lines of text in landscape mode on A4 paper. The translator has been fixed by
altering the vertical spacing and printable area that it uses.
If you use preprinted forms that depend on the translator’s old behavior, you can
define a DCPS logical name to retain that behavior. See the DECprint Supervisor
for OpenVMS System Manager’s Guide for more information.
16.1.3 PCL Translator Handles Duplexing on PostScript Level 2 Printers
The PCL translator now generates PostScript code that will print correctly on
PostScript Level 2 printers when the file includes a duplex escape sequence.
16.1.4 Correction for ANSI Performance Problem on PrintServer Printers
There is a version skew problem in the PrinterServer ANSI prologue file in DCPS
V1.1 and the version number stored in the resource file. The problem may cause
the ANSI prologue to be downloaded for each ANSI print job. To correct the
problem issue the following command:
@SYS$COMMON:[SYSHLP.EXAMPLES.DCPS]UPDATE-ANSI-PROLOGUE
16.1.5 Remote Console Aborted Jobs on PrintServer Printers
If a print job was submitted to a PrintServer printer with DCPS V1.1, and
aborted via the remote console, the job would be requeued. This problem is fixed
in DCPS V1.1A so the print job is deleted from the queue.
DCPS Version 1.1A Information 16–1
16.1.6 New Format for the Log Files
There were several problems with the log file mechanism in DCPS V1.0, V1.0B,
and V1.0C. These problems were fixed in DCPS V1.1, but not communicated to
you.
The new log file mechanism clearly displays control characters and formats data
in an easy-to-read format. However, programs that read the log file may not
operate properly.
16.1.7 Device Control Module Cache Problem Corrected
In DCPS V1.1, if there was more than one device control library, and
DCPS$DEVCTL.TLB was not the first library in the library search list, and
caching was enabled, the symbiont issued an error message stating that the
required device control modules could not be found and stopped the queue. This
problem is fixed in DCPS V1.1A.
16.1.8 Problem with P2 in DCPS$EXECUTION_QUEUE.COM Fixed
With DCPS V1.1, device names supplied in P2 for DCPS$EXECUTION_
QUEUE.COM were turned into logical names if their length exceeded 31
characters. In DCPS V1.1A, device names are not treated as logical names
until 39 characters, the maximum size for the /ON qualifier.
16.2 DCPS Version 1.1A Changes
16.2.1 Process ID Logical Name Created by Symbiont
The logical name, DCPS$queuename_PID, is defined by the symbiont when it
starts executing.
16–2 DCPS Version 1.1A Information
17
DCPS Version 1.1 Information
This chapter describes changes included in DCPS Version 1.1.
17.1 DCPS Version 1.1 New Features
This section describes the new features in DCPS Version 1.1.
17.1.1 New Interconnects and New Device Specification Syntax
DCPS Version 1.1 adds support for printing to desktop printers via AppleTalk,
and to DIGITAL PrintServer printers using TCP/IP. Refer to the DECprint
Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s Guide for the details.
Note
The device specification syntax allows a device name to be longer than
39 characters. Those device names that are longer than 39 characters
display as ‘‘DCPS$’’ for the value of the /ON qualifier.
The device name is stored in logical name DCPS$queuename_DEVICE_
NAME.
17.1.2 Native PCL Accessible on Some Printers
DCPS V1.1 can print PCL jobs, including those which specify PCL Level
5 commands, directly to certain printers without using PCL-to-PostScript
translation. Version 1.1 uses the native PCL capability of those printers when a
job requires no PostScript processing.
Not all printers that provide PCL emulation are supported by DCPS in this
manner. Printers that are supported for native PCL printing are listed here:
•
DEClaser 5100
•
DIGITAL PrintServer 17, with PrintServer Supporting Host V5.0 software
and at least 12MB memory
•
DIGITAL PrintServer 17/600, with PrintServer Supporting Host V5.0
software and at least 12MB memory
•
HP LaserJet 3Si with PostScript option
•
HP LaserJet 4M
•
HP LaserJet 4ML
•
HP LaserJet 4MP
•
HP LaserJet 4SiMX
DCPS Version 1.1 Information 17–1
17.1.3 Suprressing the OPCOM Message ‘‘User Name Not Found’’
When DCPS is executing in a cluster environment where the UAF files are
different between cluster members, an OPCOM message is displayed and the job
prints normally:
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 1-JAN-1994 18:43:55.87 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user SYSTEM on LITERA
Queue SHARIE: %DCPS-W-USERNOTFOUND, user name FOO not found,
no log files created
-RMS-E-RNF, record not found
Because the username cannot be found, the symbiont cannot perform the
‘‘MESSAGES=KEEP’’ or ‘‘MESSAGES=PRINT’’ parameter request.
To keep this OPCOM message from being displayed for every job, define the
logical name DCPS$queuename_IGNORE_UNKNOWN_USER to be one (1).
17.1.4 Device Control Library Cache Feature
DCPS V1.1 has a new device control library caching feature that optimizes the
retrieval of certain commonly-used PostScript device control modules. Refer to
the DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS System Manager’s Guide for the details.
17.1.5 ANSI Prologue File
A new ANSI prologue is included as part of the new ANSI translator in
DCPS V1.1 and is also available as a separate file. The file is located at
SYS$COMMON:[SYSHLP.EXAMPLES.DCPS]LPS_ANSI_PROLOGUE.PS. The
prologue is incompatible with the previous ANSI translators.
A PostScript printer can hold only one version of an ANSI prologue. To minimize
performance problems, after installing the DCPS V1.1 software, power-cycle nonPrintServer printers to force the DECprint Supervisor software to persistently
load the new prologue.
To update the ANSI translator prologue on your PrintServer Supporting Host
system, enter the following command:
@SYS$COMMON:[SYSHLP.EXAMPLES.DCPS]UPDATE-ANSI-PROLOGUE.COM
Then reboot your PrintServer printer.
This .COM file assumes that the DECprint Supervisor software is installed on
your supporting host system. In addition, all PrintServer printers are updated.
17.2 DCPS Version 1.1 Fixes
This section lists problems that have been corrected since DCPS V1.0 was
released.
17.2.1 Separator Tray Logical Name Works on Generic and Execution Queues
Previously, the logical name DCPS$queuename_SEPARATOR_TRAY worked only
on generic queues. It now works on execution queues as well.
17.2.2 Suppressed Messages NOPAGEREGIONOP and NOSETPAGEDEVICE
These undocumented informational messages no longer occur.
17–2 DCPS Version 1.1 Information
17.2.3 Fixed Problems Printing VFC Files
Printing a VFC-formatted file with a print file carriage control code of hex 8C
now works correctly.
DCPS does not support printing VFC-formatted and other files whose
organization is RELATIVE or INDEXED. DCPS now detects this condition
and returns a file error message.
17.2.4 Increased Range of PAGE_LIMIT to 999999
The prior limit for either starting or ending page was 9999. It is now 999999.
17.2.5 Fixed Abort when All Message Fields Disabled
DCPS will no longer terminate with the %STR-F-STRTOOLON message if
job controller is started with all message content disabled using the following
command:
$ SET MESSAGE/NOTEXT/NOFACILITY/NOIDENT/NOSEVERITY
17.2.6 Fixed ANSI Jobs with ‘‘Sinking Accented Capital Letters’’
The error with the ANSI data type in which accented capital letters such as Á
and É would print lower than surrounding characters on some types of printers
has been fixed.
17.2.7 Library Search List Correctly Searched
With DCPS V1.0, if you defined the SYS$LIBRARY logical name to be a search
list, the DECprint Supervisor software failed to find site-specific device control
libraries placed in site-specific library directories.
DCPS V1.1 corrects this problem. The supervisor correctly searches all directory
elements of the SYS$LIBRARY logical name for specified device control libraries.
17.2.8 Empty Setup Module No Longer Hangs Supervisor
DCPS V1.0 queues would stall and the supervisor would hang in an infinite
compute loop if it was instructed to load a setup module with no contents. The
DCPS V1.1 supervisor does not exhibit this behavior.
17.2.9 Corrected PostScript Handling in Layup
DCPS now correctly handles idtransform and setpagedevice commands in the
layup facility.
17.2.10 LCIT Keyword Now Recognized for PrintServer 17
You can now use the INPUT_TRAY=LCIT parameter to select the large capacity
input tray on the PrintServer 17 printer.
17.2.11 Fixed OUTPUT_TRAY=SIDE for PrintServer 17
The parameter OUTPUT_TRAY=SIDE now selects the lower tray for all members
of the PrintServer family.
17.2.12 Fixed Delay for Manual Feed with Apple and HP Printers
New code activates a delay for insertion of paper into manual feed slot with HP
LaserJet III, IIID and IIISi and supported Apple LaserWriter printers.
DCPS Version 1.1 Information 17–3
17.3 DCPS Version 1.1 Changes
17.3.1 Support for Non-Compaq/DIGITAL Printers
The DCPS Version 1.1 software adds support for additional non-DIGITAL printers
if you install the DCPS-Open license.
The following printers are among those supported by DCPS Version 1.1:
•
HP printers
LaserJet 4M, 4ML, 4MP, 4SiMx
Native PCL mode supported
LaserJet IIISi printer
PostScript Level 2 option
PaintJet XL300
Provides color printing
•
Apple LaserWriter Printers
Pro 600, Pro 630
See the DECprint Supervisor SPD for a complete list of supported printers.
17.3.2 Enhancements to the PCL Translator
The PCL-to-PostScript translator has been modified to include the following
features.
•
The following escape sequence has been implemented:
<ESC>&l9D
This escape sequence sets the line spacing to 9 lines per inch.
•
The following escape sequence has been implemented:
<ESC>&l5H
This escape sequence selects an input tray. The command will execute the
intermediate PostScript operator ’setlcittray’, which by default selects the
PostScript tray corresponding to the number 3. See the DECprint Supervisor
for OpenVMS User’s Guide for more information about redefining PCL tray
selection operators.
•
The top and left offset commands are implemented.
•
Executing the command to set both the left and right margin to 0 has changed
to give the behavior observed on the LaserJet IID; specifically, the margins
are set to give the maximum width for the selected page size.
•
The LaserJet IID does not require that a raster begin with the begin raster
command. The translator has been made compatible with the IID, although it
is recommended that a raster begin with the begin raster command.
•
The PCL translator issues a PostScript save operation before executing any
PostScript and a PostScript restore operation when the translated file finishes
printing. All virtual memory used by the translator is recovered.
17–4 DCPS Version 1.1 Information
17.3.3 LN03 Image Printer
The DCPS Version 1.1 software does not support the LN03 Image Printer
(LN03Q). If you rely on this type of printer, it is recommended that you use the
DECprint Printing Services (CPS) Version 4.1 product to drive the printers.
An alternative to the LN03 Image Printer is the PrintServer image printing
technology. DCPS Version 1.1, when used with PrintServer Software Version 5.0
or later, takes advantage of any image-printing enhancements in your PrintServer
printer.
Image printing requires the DCPS-Plus license.
17.3.4 The State of a Printer Is Not Known Until a Job Prints
Beginning with DCPS V1.1, the functions that are performed when a queue is
started have become consistent. regardless of the interconnect. Specifically, when
a queue is started there is no attempt to make a connection to the printer. This
is to minimize the possibility that a queue will not start. This is particularly
important because there should be no errors or delays when queues are started
while a system is booting. This change primarily affects printers directly
connected to a system (TTAn or TXAn device). Previous versions of DCPS
attempted a connection to a directly connected printer when the queue was
started and could detect if the printer was powered on. Now, the state of a
printer and the interconnect are not known until a job is printed.
17.3.5 New Behavior for Serial Interconnect
When communications problems arise on the serial interconnect, the symbiont
will keep listening for up to 4 minutes before disconnecting from the printer.
Therefore, under some conditions, the serial device is not released immediately
after a STOP/QUEUE/RESET command is issued.
DCPS Version 1.1 Information 17–5
A
Raw TCP/IP Port Numbers
When setting up a DCPS queue using a raw TCP/IP connection, check the
documentation for your network interface card (NIC), print server or terminal
server to determine the number of its raw TCP/IP port (if it has one). The raw
TCP/IP port must support bidirectional communication between the printer and
your OpenVMS system.
Table A–1 shows the port numbers for some commonly-used devices.
