Front-Loading, Front-Access Receipt Printer

      Disclosed is a receipt printer device whose roll paper can be
set from the front side and covered by a clear cover.  The holder of
the roll paper has a roller which prevents the paper from dropping
out.

      Fig. 1 shows this device composition.  An operator can see the
remaining amount of roll paper through the clear cover.  This cover
is removable in order to exchange the roll paper.   Therefore, the
holder size of the roll paper can be relatively small.  A roller is
set at the front side of the holder.

      The operator exchanges the roll paper by pulling the end
up.  The roll paper rotates in the same place because the roller
cancels the rotation, as shown in Fig. 2.  Without the roller, the
roll paper will roll out of the holder, as shown in Fig. 3.
