Specifies the name of a COM setup file. A COM setup file is an AFP resource that contains instructions that are required when printing on a microfilm device (microfilm can mean either microfiche or 16 mm film).
The value is:
- Any valid COM setup file name. The name can be 1 - 8 alphanumeric characters (a-z, A-Z, 0–9) and special characters (# $
@), including the 2-character prefix, if there is one. In AIX, name is case-sensitive.
Note: If the name of the COM setup file includes a file extension, do not use the file extension when you are specifying the setup file. For example, to use a setup file that is named
MYSETUP.SET, specify COMSETUP=MYSETUP.
The COM setup file you use can be located:
- In an AIX or Windows directory.
- Inline in the file (that is, within the file itself).
If the COM setup file is in an AIX or Windows directory, use the USERLIB or OBJCONLIB parameter to specify the path to the file.
In AIX , use one of these examples:
In Windows, use this example:
A COM setup file can be an inline resource in all data formats except XML. (XML data cannot have carriage control characters, which are used to identify inline resources.) If the COM setup file is an inline resource, you must specify one of these parameters:
- name is the name of the inline COM setup file. If the name specified in the COMSETUP parameter does not match the name of an inline COM setup file, ACIF looks for the COM setup file in the COMSETUP search path.
- If you specify COMSETUP=DUMMY but the file does not include an inline COM setup file, ACIF looks for the COM setup file named DUMMY.
An input file can contain multiple COM setup files, but only one COM setup file can be used for printing. If a file contains more than one COM setup file, and you specify COMSETUP=name, ACIF uses the first inline COM setup file named name. If a file contains more than one inline COM setup file, and you specify COMSETUP=DUMMY, ACIF uses the first inline COM setup file in the input file.
