This use of overrides requires somewhat more foresight than the override applications listed above. Examples of items where overrides can be used are:. 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.
IBM i: Example: Apply OVRPRTF with *PRTF
A write operation iseroes the next output record. If a CL program overrides a file and then calls a high-level language program, the override remains in effect for the high-level language program. An override is only active for ovrprtg current sign on session. An immediate allocation of the device by the device resource is required when an acquire operation is performed to the file.
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.
You can process override functions for files using the following CL commands:. You might want to prevent the person or program that calls your program from changing the printer file names or parameters you have specified. Some fonts can be substituted by the printer.
Examples of items where overrides can be used are: Overrides can be called from different levels programs calling another program. Files are associated with an application program by the file names specified in the program when it is created. The program must be able to accommodate the different characteristics of the two devices involved. 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.
This is because the resident font references in the data stream must be mapped to host fonts which are downloaded to the printer. You can use overrides to change most, but not all, of the file attributes that are specified when the file is created.
You can process override functions for files using the following CL commands: Consult the various printer iserifs guides for details. 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. Overrides are used to temporarily specify a different printer file or temporarily change some of the attributes of a file.
Changing the name of the issries to be processed Indicating ovrprtc 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.
If the printer stops and the next record processed has a channel value forms-control number that is the same value as the line iserles the printer is on, the printer advances to that value line number on the next page.
OVRPRTF command – Code -The Support Alternative
In some cases, you can specify attributes in overrides that are not part of the original file definition. This value is not allowed if the file was created on a system at an earlier release level than V2R3M0. This is because the override in the CL program is deleted when the CL program ends. Level checking cannot be done unless the program contains the record format identifiers. Overriding ovr;rtf file is different from changing a file in that an override does not permanently change the attributes of a file.
Overrides are particularly useful for making minor changes to the way a program functions or for selecting the data on which it operates, without having to recompile the program.
However, if a 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. You can override these file names or attributes of a specified file when you compile a program or run a program.
Alphanumeric characters are printed with the value specified on the CPI parameter. This parameter does not specify the printer character density of alphanumeric characters. This article discusses overriding printer files. Override commands can be entered interactively from a display station or as part of a batch job. It is also possible to use overrides to direct data input or ovrortf that is sent to a device of a different type.
Their principal value is in allowing you to use general purpose programs in iseriws wider variety of circumstances. CL program override considerations If a CL program overrides a file and then calls a high-level language program, the override remains in effect for the high-level language program.
For example, sending data that is intended for a diskette to a printer instead. Overlays are not reduced when more than one page is printed on a side. 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 izeries language programs.
Regardless of how they are issued, overrides remain in effect only for the job, program, or sign on session in which they are issued. 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. The iseroes supplies three override functions: Any printer or attachment that does not support resident fonts can not support IPDS pass-through.
