I would like users to have the capability to "start" their own writers, but I want to restrict them from viewing other people's outqs. What is the best way to go about this?
First of all, don't give them *SPLCTL. *SPLCTL is the equivalent of *ALLOBJ -- only for spooled files. Three attributes of the outq -- DSTDTA, OPRCTL and AUTCHK -- determine who can do what to a spooled file. The MCPressOnline article at --> .xIu3bksmme9.4@.6ae7c82c>http://email@example.comIu3bksmme9.4@.6ae7c82c explains the settings and how to use them.
