The Display Spooled  File 80 command displays  a spooled file in  an 80
wide  display format  even though  the display  is  capable of  a wider
width  (such  as 132).    This provides  for  a larger  font  size when
viewing  spooled output.    The  same  windowing,  paging,  and  'find'
functions  as  exist for  the  system  DSPSPLF  command are  supported.
Blank lines may be excluded (same as DSPSPLF) or included.

A typical command would be:

             DSPSPLF80   FILE(xxx)

DSPSPLF80 may also be used as an option on WRKALLSPLF.

The maximum width spooled file (378) is supported.

The  advantage  of  DSPSPLF80  is  that  it  allows  larger print  than
DSPSPLF when  displaying a  spooled file  on a  display  that allows  a
wider than 80  width.  For example,  many displays provide a  132 width
and  DSPSPLF  uses a  smaller font  to  take advantage  of  the option.
Depending on the data  being displayed, an 80  wide format can be  more

DSPSPLF80 escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   FILE          The spooled file that you want to display.

   JOB           The job name  which contains the  spooled file.   An *
                 indicates  the current  job.   A  fully  qualified job
                 name may be used.

   SPLNBR        The spooled file number.  The default is *ONLY.

                 *LAST  may  be  entered  or  a  specific  spooled file

   BLANKLINES    Whether to omit or  include blank lines.   The default
                 is  *OMIT to omit  blank lines  and provide  a display
                 similar to DSPSPLF.

                 *INCLUDE  may be specified to  include blank lines and
                 provide  a  display  similar  to  the  TAA   DSPPRTSPC


A maximum of  40,000 print lines may  be displayed.  If  a file exceeds
40,000, only the first 40,000 may be displayed.

Using BLANKLINES(*OMIT),  an average of 45 lines  to a page would allow
for approximately 900 pages.

Using  BLANKLINES(*INCLUDE),  each  blank  counts  toward  the   40,000
maximum thus allowing for about 600 pages to be displayed.
