Entries in the queue_descript are defined as:

Printer/Plotter

PDprint network printer,\\PDSTRF\LaserJet

  • PDprint is the PDS-recognized printer name.

  • The PDS printer name is followed by a TAB.

  • After the TAB, the description which is displayed to the user is entered, network printer in this example.

  • If the optional printer name is being used, a comma is next.

  • The optional printer name \\PDSTRF\LaserJet is entered last.

It is valid to omit the optional printer name. The PDS software would then search for a printer named PDprint. If PDprint is associated with a user-defined printer name, such as \\PDSTRF\LaserJet, the software looks for \\PDSTRF\LaserJet instead of PDprint. For example:

PDprint network printer

---OR---

PDprint network printer,\\PDSTRF\LaserJet

Batch Queue Definition

PDiso_ batch Process Locally, PDisocreate

  • PDiso_batch is the PDS-recognized queue name.

  • The PDS queue name is followed by a TAB.

  • After the TAB, the description which displays to the user is entered, Process Locally in this example.

  • If the optional queue name is being used, a comma is next.

  • The optional queue name PDisocreate is entered last.

It is valid to omit the optional queue name. The PDS software would then search for a queue named PDiso_batch. If PDiso_batch is associated with a user-defined queue name, such as PDisocreate, the software looks for PDisocreate instead of PDiso_batch. For example:

PDiso_batch Process Locally

---OR---

PDiso_batch Process Locally, PDisocreate
