The following description illustrates a new approach to improving the throughput rate of a printer. Usually, the controller insures a previous task is properly terminated before initiating the following one. This is to permit error recovery and fault-free restarts when a malfunction occurs during a task. This approach, however, reduces throughput because of the time periods between the completion of one task and the beginning of the next.
