Abstract

This article describes a justification method for a printer having a fixed set of three character widths accomplished by insertion of additional space between words in a text line to cause the measured length to be increased to a predetermined value while having a minimum impact on the appearance of the line, this appearance being achieved by distributing additional space as evenly as possible between words in the line.
