Abstract

Identification of a document stored in memory is obtainable when using a resistive ribbon printhead without an operator having to recall and/or record the file identification of the document. This is accomplished through providing the file identification on a page of the document in a machine readable code that the electrodes of the resistive ribbon printhead can read when in a scanning mode.
