Device Driver Interface (DDI)
A print device attached directly to a computer, usually through a parallel port
direct-attached printer
Device-independent spool data used to reduce the amount of time spent processing a print job. Once it's queued,EMF data requires additonal processing to prepare it for the printer.

network interface printer
The part of the print monitor that transmits the print job to the print device via the specific port. Port monitors are actually unaware of print devices as such, but only know that something's on the other end of the port.
port monitor
A network client machine that transmits print jobs across the network to a printer for spooling and delivery to a designated print device or printer pool.
print client
In everyday language, a piece of equipment that provides output service-in other words, a printer. Howerver, in Microsoft terminology, a printer is a logical service that accepts print jobs and delivers them to some print device for output when that device is ready. Therefore, in Microsoft terminology, a print device is any piece of equipment that can produce output, so this term would also describe a plotter, a fax machine, ore a slide printer, as well as a text-oriented output device such as an HP LaserJet.
print device
The contents of a completely or partially interpreted data file that contains text and control chararacter that will ultimately be delivered to a print device to be printed, or otherwise rendered in some tangible form.
print job
Software that works with the printer driver to despool files and make any necessary changes to the data to format it for use with a particular printer. The ________ _________ itself is a PostScript program that understands the format of a document image file and how to print the file to a specific PostScript printer or class of printers.
print processor
The server-side software that sends the print job to the proper server in the format that it requires. Windows 2000 supports both Windows network ______ _______ and NetWare _________ ________.
print provider
A measurement of the number of dots per inch (dpi) that describes that output capabilities of a print device; most laser printers usually produce output at 300 or 600 dpi. In general, the larger the dpi rating for a device, the better looking its output will be (but high resulution devices cost more than low-resolution ones).
print resolution
The software component in the Windows 2000 print subsystem that directs print jobs from one print server to another, or from a client to a remote printer.
print router
A computer that links print devices to the network and shares those devices with client computers on the network.
print server
A collection of named software components on a print server that handles incoming print jobs and forwards them to a print spooler for postprocessing and delivery to a print device. These components include support for special job handling that can enable a variety of client computers to send print jobs to a print server for processing.
Print server services
A collection of Windows 2000 DLLs used to acquire, process, catalog, and dispense print jobs to print devices. The spooler acts like a holding tank, in that it manages an area on disk called the spool file on a print server, where pending print jobs are stored until they've been successfully output. The term "despooling" refers to the process of reading and interpreting what's in a spool file for delivery to a print device.
print spooler
In Microsoft terminology, a printer is not a physical device, but rather a named system object that communicates between the operating system and some print device. The printer handles the printing process for Windows 2000 from the time a print command is issued, until a print job has been successfully output. the settings extablished for a printer in the Add Printer Wizard in the Printers folder (Start, Programs, Printers) indicate which print device (or devices, in the case of a printer pool) will handle print output, and also provide controls over how print jobs will be handled (banner page, special postprocessing, and so forth)
printer (logical printer)
Special-purpose software components that manage communications between the I/O Manager and a specific print device. Ultimately, _______ _______ make it possible for Windows 2000 to despool print jobs, and send them to a print device for output services. Modern _________ _______ also permit the printer to communicate with Windows 2000, and to inform it about print job status, error conditions (out of paper,paper jam, and so forth), and print job problems.
print driver
The part of the printer driver that renders GDI commands into device driver interface commands that may be sent to the printer.
printer graghics driver
The part of the printer driver that provides an interface to the printer settings.
printer interface driver
A specialized language that provides printer control at the print-job level and enables users to change printer default levels such as number of copies, color, printer languages, and so on.
Printer Job Language
A collection of two or more identically configured print devices to which one or more Windows 2000 printers direct their print jobs. Basically, a ________ ______ permits two or more printers to act in concert to handle high-volume printing needs.
printer pool
The setting that helps to determine which printer in a pool will get a given print job. The printer with the higher priority is more likely to get the print job.
printer priority
A series of files stored in sequential order waiting for delivery from a spool file to a print device.
queue (print queue)
Device-dependent spool data that is fully ready to print when rendered.
Graghically creating a print job.
One of the functions of the print spooler, this is the act of writing the contents of a print job to a file on disk so they will not be lost if the print server is shut down before the job is completed.
