PSF, Email, InfoPrint 2000

Type

Resettable, single-valued

Allowed Values

You can enter the name of a resource-context object or a text string up to 255 characters long that defines the directory path to the AFP resources. You can specify one or more paths for one resource context.

Syntax

path:path for AIX
path:path for Linux
path;path for Windows

Separate multiple paths with a colon on AIX and Linux or a semicolon on Windows.

Default Value

With AIX or Linux, no default values, but InfoPrint always searches /usr/lpp/psf/reslib.

With Windows, no default values, but InfoPrint always searches install_path\reslib.

Usage Guidelines

You can use this attribute to locate default resources.

InfoPrint searches resource paths in this order:

  1. resource-context-user document attribute
  2. resource-context-font document attribute
  3. resource-context document attribute
  4. PSFPATH environment variable
  5. resource-context-font actual destination attribute
  6. resource-context actual destination attribute
  7. With AIX or Linux:
    1. /usr/lpp/psf/reslib
    2. /usr/lpp/afpfonts for fonts
    3. /usr/lpp/psf/fontlib for fonts
  8. With Windows:
    1. install_path\reslib
    2. install_path\fontlib for fonts

If InfoPrint cannot find the resource because none of the paths contain the resource, it still processes the job and prints error messages at the end of the job. InfoPrint reports the job as completed.

InfoPrint Manager uses the directory paths for fonts specified with resource-context-font at print time; they are not searched by ACIF or the line2afp transform during processing. When you need to have ACIF or the line2afp transform search the directory paths for fonts, use the resource-context-font document/default document attribute.
