An advanced function printer receives data in units of pages. The data within a page is not required to be sent in the order of printing. This neccessitates the internal buffering of an entire page within the printer before printing can begin. Furthermore, data may be placed at any position on the page that is addressable by the head since there are no line-oriented restrictions.
