Chasing down dead jobs with pending printouts

This tip helps you chase down dead jobs with pending printouts.

If you issue this command: WRKUSRJOB USER(*ALL) STATUS(*OUTQ) you get a listing of all jobs that has spoolfiles in any outq. You can work with these spoolfiles, check them out etc. and when you delete them the "hanging" job automatically disappears.

A nice and controlled way to hunt down these spoolfiles that no one seems to care about.
