       gspl-cjlist - dump out GNUspool jobs to directory


       gspl-cjlist [ -D dir ] [ -e n ] [ -u ] [ -s ] [ -f ] [ -m ] job file outfile workdir


       gspl-cjlist converts GNUspool job files held in the spool directory to an executable shell
       script which may be used to recreate them. This may be useful for backup purposes or for
       one stage in upgrading from one release of GNUspool to another.

       The jobs are copied into the backup directory workdir, and the generated shell script file
       outfile refers to files in that directory.

       gspl-cjlist will, if required, skip apparent errors in the job file.

       In addition to options, three arguments are always supplied to gspl-cjlist.

       Job list file
           This is the file containing the attributes of the jobs, spshed_jfile in the spool
           directory, by default, or as relocated by re-specifying "SPOOLDIR".

       Output file
           This file is created by gspl-cjlist to contain the executable shell script which may
           be used to create the jobs.

       Backup directory
           This directory is used to hold the job data.

       Note that saved jobs make use of the -U option to gspl-pr(1) to set the ownership
       correctly but do not attempt to use the -E and -o options to set external queue or
       originating hosts.


       -D directory
           specifies the source directory for the jobs and job file rather than the current
           directory. It can be specified as $SPOOLDIR or "${SPOOLDIR-/var/spool/gnuspool}" etc
           and the environment and/or gnuspool.conf will be interrogated to interpolate the value
           of the environment variable given.

           If you use this, don't forget to put single quotes around it thus:

            gspl-cjlist -D '${SPOOLDIR-/var/spool/gnuspool}' ...

           otherwise the shell will try to interpret the "$" constructs and not gspl-cjlist.

       -e n
           Tolerate n errors of the kinds denoted by the other options before giving up trying to
           convert the file.

       -f  Ignore format errors (invalid form types etc) in the saved job file up to the limit of
           errors given by the -e option.

       -m  Create "missing" dummy jobs where the job file refers to jobs not in the saved

       -s  Ignore file size errors in the saved job file (up to the number of total errors given
           by the -e option).

       -u  Do not reject the save job file if it contains invalid  user names.

           This may be necessary where the job file is corrupted and gspl-cjlist cannot work out
           which version it is.
