Abstract

During the development of a printer, the multi-function adapter card was under development and unavailable to be used to drive the printer from the host processor. However, in order to drive the printer conventional adapter cards and specialized host processing routines simulating the multi-function adapter card were developed. The exerciser program was designed to run with either the multi-function adapter card or the conventional card in a simulation mode.
