Abstract

This idea relates to data processing systems of the type including a host computer, a printer and one or more display terminals. Data to be printed can be supplied to the printer from the host computer or one or more of the display terminals. The data from the host computer is transmitted in blocks of data arranged in groups, and there are gaps between the transmission of successive blocks of data in each group.
