The program must be able to accommodate the different characteristics of the two devices involved.

Override commands can be entered interactively from a display station iserise as part of a batch job. This is because the resident font references in the data stream must iseriea mapped to host fonts which are downloaded to the printer. You might want to prevent the person or program that calls your program from changing the printer file names or parameters you have specified.

Examples of items where overrides can be used are:.

An override is only active for the current sign on session. The system supplies three override functions: 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.

Example: Apply OVRPRTF with *PRTF

For landscape paper on a printer, the rotation is counter-clockwise from the 0 degree rotation position upper right corner of the first edge loaded into the printer. 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.


Their principal value is in allowing you to use general purpose programs in a wider variety of circumstances. 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.

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. You can process override functions for files using the following CL commands: Consult the various printer reference 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. A write operation produces the next output record. This value is not allowed if the file was created on a system at an earlier release level than V2R3M0.

Regardless of how they are issued, overrides remain in effect only for the job, program, or sign on session in which they are issued. This article discusses overriding printer files. An immediate allocation of orvprtf device by the device resource is required when an acquire operation is performed to the file. Overlays are not reduced when more than one page is printed on a side.

Some fonts can be substituted by the printer. For example, sending data that isseries intended for a diskette to iseriex printer instead. Refer to the command descriptions for more information. If the printer stops and the next record processed has a channel value forms-control number that is the same value as the line number the printer is on, the printer advances to that value line number on the next page.


It is also possible to use overrides to direct data input or data that is sent to a device of a different type.

Printer file overrides

You can override these file names or attributes of a specified file when you compile a program or run a program. This use of overrides requires somewhat more foresight than the override iserries listed above. You can use overrides to change most, but not all, of the file attributes that are specified when the file is created.

Examples of items where overrides can be used are: In some cases, you can specify attributes in overrides that are not part of the original file definition.

IBM i: Printer file overrides

If a CL program overrides a file and then calls a high-level language program, the override remains in effect for the ovr;rtf language program. This is because the override in the CL program is deleted when the CL program ends. Overrides can be called from different levels programs calling another program.
