Abstract

In advanced high speed printers used in word processing technology, it is conventional to operate so that demands from the controller are sent to the printer but not executed when they are received. They are accumulated and executed when the final print command is received. Very often the equipment will have an accumulation of trailing index or escapement commands following the last character on a particular page. These commands are not to be executed and must be removed before the next document is started; otherwise, they will incorrectly affect the document.
