Print Queue: Device control library not in SYS$LIBRARY
The Question is:
building a print que, ie:
VMs forces the .tlb text library to be placed
Why such a restriction?. Pointing to an alternate
directory would make managment of our site much
easier and cleaner.
Any undocumented workarounds?
(Would rather not distort VMS by redefining SYS$LIBRARY
as a search list).
The Answer is:
The code indeed hard-codes the library in SYS$LIBRARY. It does not
perform logical name translation. Unfortunatly, changing this behavior
would break backward compatibility as some system might have device
control library name conflict with logical names and not be aware of
it. It is one of those ennoying things that would be done differently
if done today, but are better left untouched in OpenVMS.
