Resource group files

The IndexAFP command can create a resource group file that contains all the AFP resources that a production AFP file references.

The resource group file lets you print an AFP file on another system where the AFP resources are not present. It also lets you reprint an archived AFP file using the original resources.

For example, suppose that a page segment contains a company officer's signature and is included in the print data. When someone else replaces the officer, current print files must contain the new officer's signature, but archived files must contain the former officer's signature. To print an archived file with the original resources, you use the resource group file.
