Abstract

A technique is described whereby resource loading of print information, as used in advanced function printers, is optimized by means of a merging operation. By merging the file information, the speed of printing complex documents can be improved. The concept also provides additional information which can be used to reduce the size of font resources, so as to improve the printing speed and to enhance the complexity of documents to be processed. The utilization of the concepts merging of resource loading information file produces a new resource loading information file format for print service facilities [*]. Added to each resource section of the record is the page number, to be used when each resource will be required.
