I have copied a spoolfile to my PC manually using iSeries Navigator. And I've copied a database file to the IFS using the CPYTOIMPF command. So I suspect there must be a way to get the spoolfile to the IFS -- either manually or a command. When I try to drag it from the basic operations, printer output, it will not work. Is this a security issue? I looked for a command but did not find one.
You kind of answered your own question
Here's how I'd do it:
First create a database file like:
CRTPF FILE(QTEMP/DBfile) RCDLEN(132)
Next copy the spool file into that database file:
CPYSPLF FILE(MySpoolFile) TOFILE(QTEMP/DBfile)
Now that you have a database file, it is easily moved into the IFS like this:
CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(QTEMP/DBfile) TOSTMF('/home/keg/MySpoolFile.txt') STMFCODPAG(*STDASCII) RCDDLM(*CRLF) DTAFMT(*FIXED)
