APAR Error Description / Circumvention

Customer using printer file parameter CTVLINDTA needs to specify
directories other than the default ones for the location of
their True Type Fonts.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE60249 :
-----------------------------
This PTF adds support for printer file parameter CVTLINDTA to
access paths specified for True Type Fonts in environment
variable QIBM_FONT_RESOURCES_PATH. Thus customers can store True
Type Fonts and their associate Resource Access Table in any
directories in the root file system.

--------------------------------
None.
