AS/400 today. The system writes spool files directly to tape,
savf or zipped file. Zipped files use minimal amount of DASD,
which distinguishes e-Spool
from competing products. This saves valuable AS/400 and/or iSeries
400 resources. In addition, the high speed of save and restore
zip functions reduces processing time, while using minimal DASD
leaves space for other data. e-Spool
can also be invoked via commands for easy implementation into
