Dear Raghu,

An educated guess would be in how the spool file is moved and/or being
listed. What happens if you
list with Display functions on? A guess would be that CCTL was munged in
one of the moves/copies.

I am not sure that I understand how the output files/stdlists are
processed and who or what is looking
at them, but that is where I would start to look. The first step is to
list them with display functions, you
may see that the lines are there but with an extra or odd escape
sequence.

Sincerely,


Neil Armstrong
Robelle
