Abstract

A program, for a known printer, is disclosed which permits dynamic allocation of up to 4K RAM, from 24K RAM assigned to a Dot Image Table (DIT), for use in graphics tasks. This releases the fixed 4K RAM assigned to Graphic Modules for use by additional functions and features. Thus the printer function and performance are enhanced without the cost of adding new RAM.
