Frequently asked question

How do I identify the driver(s) used by the Arc command PLOT?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The Arc command PLOT references the $ARCHOME/sysgen/pltque file set up by the system administrator. Each entry is defined by four lines in the pltque file:

- The device name that appears in the PLOT menu.
- The type of translation.
- The device name, it must match the definition in your system's spooler.
- The pathname for an AML, which calls the appropriate driver.
