spool file
Jump to user comments
Any file to which data is spooled to await the next stage of
processing. Especially used in circumstances where spooling
the data copes with a mismatch between speeds in two devices
or pieces of software. For example, when you send mail under
Unix, it's typically copied to a spool file to await a
transport demon's attentions.
