Spool-a-Matic is an i5/OS based software utility that converts System i spooled files into industry standard file formats and places the resulting PC file into any directory in the i5/OS's Integrated File System. Spooled files can be split into multiple PC files based on data found on the page. This is ideal for separating pages by branch, by customer, or by other criteria. Depending on the Integrated File System name specified, you can place the generated file in any file system known to i5/OS including writing directly to Windows systems on the network, another System i, Novell NetWare or NFS servers. With Spool-a-Matic you can make i5/OS spooled output available to your users in the form best suited to them.
The product can convert spooled files to a wide variety of formats, the most popular of which is Adobe's Portable Document Format ( PDF). The PDF conversion is fully enabled for all levels of document complexity found in i5/OS printed output. Print data, page segments, overlays, color, graphics, images, fonts and barcodes are accurately processed to give you PDF files that display and print like the original spooled file. The resulting PDF file is text based (not a bit image), and can be searched and indexed using Adobe's products. The PDF files can be encrypted, password protected, and compressed during the conversion to provide security and reduce storage requirements. As additional options the PDF files can be digitally signed NEW or ISO 19005-1:2005 PDF/A compliant. Extensive bookmarking capabilities, based on DDS's indexing keywords or data on the page, allow you to generate PC files that are easy to navigate. Additional parameters allow you to specify the PDF document title, document subject, document open options, and font imbedding, giving fine grain control over the presentation of your data to the end user. The conversion to PDF is DBCS and unicode enabled for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
