When you abort a print job, the print job completes the page that is
currently printing. Then the job is removed from the queue. If the
output queue has been set up to put trailing pages at the end of jobs,
a trailer page is printed after the current page is completed. For
information on how a batch job is aborted, see the description of the
Use the STOP/QUEUE/ABORT command to abort the current print job and to
delete it from the queue. You do not specify a job entry number with
the /ABORT qualifier, because output queues can have only one current
job at a time.
Use the STOP/QUEUE/ENTRY command to abort one or more batch jobs that
are executing currently on a queue and to delete them from the queue.
To stop a batch job, you must specify an entry number because batch
queues, unlike print queues, can have more than one job executing at
the same time. (You also can use the STOP/QUEUE/ENTRY command to abort
a print job that is printing or processing currently on a queue, and to
delete it from the queue.)
Use the STOP/QUEUE/REQUEUE command to stop batch or print jobs and to
requeue them. Use the DELETE/ENTRY command to delete an entry that is
queued and awaiting execution.
If you enter the STOP/QUEUE/ABORT command accidentally for a
malfunctioning queue, enter the STOP/QUEUE/RESET command to stop the
queue in an orderly fashion.
This example aborts the current print job on the queue LPA0. The print
symbiont begins to process the first pending job in the queue. Assuming
there is no problem with the printer, the current page of the file
completes printing. If the printer queue has been set up to put trailer
pages at the end of jobs, a trailer page is printed after the current
page is completed.
For batch queues an entry number must be provided. To abort a batch
job, use the STOP/QUEUE/ENTRY command.
