Clearing the spool directory

From time to time we run into the problem of the SPOOL directory being full and a print job cannot complete. I have added a function to FNSNAP.dll to remedy this FNCLRSPL IF you add this to your menu program just before your user exits from BR it will clear both the PDF and regular files stored in t...

If an array is an optional parameter to a function and it is not referenced in the call then it essentially does not exist in the funtion called and can not be manipulated within the function.
