Does Blinky use optimised timing - Siegfried - 05-09-2021 09:32 PM

The HP 82240B Technical Interfacing Guide has extensive information on how to optimize printing speed. This is basically done by keeping a tab on full the buffer would be with a printer already slowed down by old batteries and can be improved by considering that partial lines print faster than full lines, etc.

Does anyone know whether the system routines of the HP 82242A "Blinky" module use any such optimisations? Do the HP48 routines?
