Looking at spool files is something that both programmers
and end users depend on daily. Yet the standard OS/400
spool-display feature is rudimentary and has remained
virtually unchanged since it was written.
So you often need to print out a file just to see
what it looks like, or open it up in an SEU browse session
to scan it properly.
That's why Spool View was created. It a re-write of
OS/400ís spool display that overcomes many of its limitations.
Almost every aspect has been improved on. From mixed-case
and backward scanning, to display of blank lines, overprinting
and IPDS / AFPDS attributes.
See a full list of Features.
If you're familiar with Source Entry Utility (SEU),
Spool View can be made to run with a single Control/Find
line, and F9 retrieval - this is configurable by user
of course. It also has a full screen mode showing six
extra lines of text - a difference you'll appreciate.
Spool View is very efficiently written and actually
runs faster than the standard program.
Spool View makes your job easier by making something
that you use every day more user-friendly and functional.
