Abstract

The microcode for a document on demand printer is modified to provide automatic EJECT and LOAD functions, obviating the normal requirement for the printer operator to manually depress the printer EJECT and LOAD keys for each print job. This reduction of operator interaction with the printer, after set-up, to the sole act of tearing off the form on completion of each print job, if desired, facilitates unattended or under the counter operation.
