The response header shall indicate an error of process initiation, or it shall contain error type 0, indicating success, and the error modifier shall denote the completion of process initiation: 0 indicates that process initiation has completed successfully, and 1 indicates that process initiation is pending – the agent should send another job status request to learn about completion.

The fields of the job status response and their sequence shall be:

  1. Job request number: <LI> the job request number from the job status request.
  2. Process identifier: <SS> $Job (see ANSI/MDC X11.1) of the initiated process, an ASCII string of decimal digits. If the server's operating system does not provide this information, this field shall equal the empty string. While process initiation is pending, the value of process identifier is unspecified.
