Printer Sharing via Operator Accessible Diskette Diskette
An operator accessible diskette drive is incorporated in a printer for sharing
by multiple users in typical personal computer/workstation environments.
With appropriate software, jobs for printing on the shared printer are
"spooled" onto a magnetic diskette at a personal computer/workstation, not
shown, in a format that promotes rapid reading and subsequent printing. The
diskette is then hand- carried to shared printer 10 incorporating the operator
accessible diskette drive 11. The diskette is inserted through slot 12, and drive
11 is actuated by a start button or the like, not shown, to conventionally read the
diskette and print in response to that reading. Printer 10 is either a stand-alone
machine or is connected to one or more workstations with appropriate structure
for switching between the connection sources and drive 11. Drive 11 also
accommodates entry of other data, programs, fonts, tests or diagnostics, and the
This allows economic use of letter-quality printers, such as low-end
xerographic printers, and avoids the expense of hard- cabling adequate printers
or establishing networks for printer sharing as is done in currently available
