- Spooling (under any system) provides an intermediate storage location for files (or program output) for printing at a later time.
- In the case of VistA, the Kernel manages spooling so that the underlying OS mechanism is transparent. The Kernel subsequently transfers the text to the ^XMBS global for despooling (printing).
