Subject: SAS/GRAPH on MVS, print, PSF/MVS, PSF/2, hardware/software fonts
Question (short version):
Has anyone succeded in printing SAS/Graph via. PSF/MVS and PSF/2 on a
LAN-printer using non-SAS/GRAPH-fonts (either hardware fonts in the
printer or soft-fonts delivered by PSF/MVS or PSF/2) ?
Question (long version):
I am trying to print nice text-reports (proportional fonts, borders,
gray-shades) using DSGI from interactive SAS on MVS.
I can not use SCRIPT (DCF/GML) nor may I generate printer-specific output
Currently I am printing with the GDDMFAM4 device-driver, using
SAS/GRAPH-fonts, but the result is very crude (240 dpi when DevToken=
Fine240) or very black (when using DevToken IMG300A4 which is defined as
a LINES=3 device by GDDM).
The other problem is print-time - it takes many minutes to generate 5
pages of DSGI-print.
Any ideas ?
Can I tell GDDM to use hardware-fonts (or PSF/2 soft-fonts) ?
Can I use another device-driver to generate AFPDS output ?
Can I in any way get PSF or PSF/2 to accept an IPDS print-file
generated using the IBM4224 device-driver (which is defined with
several scalable hardware-fonts in the driver)
