The Advanced Spoolfile Processor
for the HP3000
The ASP is an add-on
module for ESPUL that greatly extends the output management functions that can
be performed with ESPUL. ASP is a background processor designed to
perform automated, repetitive processing of spoolfiles
in the MPE spool queue. ASP's functions include:
- Automated report distribution. Use distribution
lists to send report copies to various recipients with custom banners,
printers, environments and etc.
- Report packaging and print order control.
- Report content analysis. Scan spoolfiles
for specific strings and take action when strings are found/not found.
Primarily used for $STDLIST error checking. Includes highlighting of found
strings and a variety of user notification methods.
- Spoolfile archiving system based on an Image database.
Remove spoolfiles from the spool queue and store
in secure disk files. Archived files are recorded in an Image data base
with complete information about the archived files. Archived files may be
moved to tape with tape volume recorded in the database. Archived files
may be restored to the spool queue for reprint. Archive database can
easily be browsed and archived files still on disk can be viewed on-line.
- User designed banners
- Supports background network spoolfile
transfer between HP3000 systems and network printing.
- User-exit feature
allows extension of ASP with user written programs or MPE command files.
The uses of ASP are only limited by your imagination!
requires ESPUL. ASP is priced based on operating system and CPU size with 12%
annual maintenance. Contact Software Devices for current pricing.
