how to read the printer spool file created by any application and find
out the metafiles associated with it which are stored in the temp dir?

any app creates the  spool(*.spl) file along with the schedule(*.shd)
file in the windows spool dir for a particular printer

in case the print spool is left with old spool files, it will be easy to
view the associated metafiles and print/manage it.

thanks
