NAME

Printer::ESCPOS::Connections::Serial - Serial Connection Interface for Printer::ESCPOS (supports status commands)

VERSION

version 1.006

ATTRIBUTES

deviceFilePath

This variable contains the path for the printer device file like '/dev/ttyS0' when connected as a serial device on UNIX-like systems. For Windows this will be the serial port name like 'COM1', 'COM2' etc. This must be passed in the constructor. I haven't tested this on windows, so if you are able to use serial port successfully on windows, drop me a email to let me know that I got it right :)

baudrate

When used as a local serial device you can set the baudrate of the printer too. Default (38400) will usually work, but not always.This param may be specified when creating printer object to make sure it works properly.

$printer = Printer::Thermal->new(deviceFilePath => '/dev/ttyACM0', baudrate => 9600);

readConstTime

Seconds per unfulfilled read call, default 150

serialOverUSB

Set this value to 1 if you are connecting your printer using the USB Cable but it shows up as a serial device

METHODS

read

Read Data from the printer

print

Sends buffer data to the printer.
