Print Stream File (PRTSTMF) Command

Back in 2005, I threw together a really quick example program that takes a stream file ("IFS file") and just copies the raw data into a *USERASCII spooled file.

This can be useful if you have PostScript or PDF data in your IFS and you have a printer that understands how to print these formats. You can simply copy the file data, as-is, to the printer because it already understands the format.

To my surprise, a lot of people have been using the utility (despite that it's extremely simple code) and have been asking me to put it on my web site for anyone to download. So... here it is! Enjoy.
