RPLPRTF REPLACE PRINTER FILE TAAPRTC
The Replace Printer File command re-creates an existing Printer File
using the parameters that are stored in the object.
The intent of RPLPRTF is to provide a simple re-create when only the
source statements have been changed.
A typical command would be entered as:
RPLPRTF extracts the existing parameters from the object (e.g.
SHARE, CPI, OVERFLOW etc.) and re-creates the object. REPLACE(*YES)
is specified on the create command which will place the old object
into the QRPLOBJ library and copy the authorizations. The TEXT
parameter value is taken from the source member and not the existing
