DESCRIPTION

This module generates commands for the Epson RP-U420 invoice printer for printing the Unified Invoice in Taiwan.

You must install the driver and printer processor properly before you can use the module.

You can define multiple lines of headers that will appear on each page of the printed invoices, and when you do println the module does all the necessary paging and stamping for you.

METHODS

new

init_printer

feed( $lines )

Feed $lines lines, default is 1.

stamp

Make the printer stamp on the invoice. note that you generally don't want to call this method directly, due to the stamp positioning. When you call cut, the module automatically detects the correct place to stamp for the next invoice.

cut

feed the current invoice and cut, as well as stamping on the next invoice.

print

Low level print function.

println

Print a line on the invoice. Does all the paging logic here.
