    ****************************************************************
    Formerly, if you used message printing to print on a printer on
    z/OS, the records in the spool data set were padded with
    hexadecimal zeros (0x00). Thus, only blank pages were emitted
    by printers that are connected with the z/OS system directly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Now, the records in the spool data set are padded with blanks
    (0x40 in EBCDIC), and so printing with such printers also works
    correctly.
