Patent Number: 6,434,445

Title: Printing apparatus with real-time cut-sheet waiting state cancellation

Abstract: A printing apparatus comprises a real-time command detector that detects control commands without first storing the received comand data in memory. A host device can therefore cancel a cut-sheet waiting state of the printer even when the printing apparatus is stopped while waiting for a cut- sheet form to be inserted.
