客户计算机18利用HTML浏览器21通过HTTP服务器11与打印机17进行通信。 The client computer 18 using the HTML browser 21 communicates with the printer 11 via the HTTP server 17. 在URL寄存器由HTML浏览器21通过HTTP服务器11进行访问之后,客户计算机18指定在URL寄存器12中的HTML文档42的URL。 After the URL register 21 is accessed via the HTTP server 11 by the HTML browser, the client computer 18 URL specified in the URL of the HTML document register of 1242. 因此,HTML转换器13根据存储于URL寄存器12中的HTML文档42的URL与服务计算机20的HTTP服务器41进行通信,并接收HTML文档42的数据。 Thus, HTML converter 13 communicates according to URL stored in the register 12 is URL of the HTML document 42 and the service computer 41 an HTTP server 20, and receives the HTML document data 42. HTML转换器13把HTML文档42的字符或位图数据转换为用于打印机17中的打印机语言数据,并把转换后的数据传输到打印机语言程序14。 HTML converter 13 character or bitmap data 42 is converted into an HTML document printer language data used in the printer 17, and transfers the data to the converted printer language program 14.

在本实施例中,URL寄存器12和HTML转换器13构成用于根据来自客户计算机18的请求从服务计算机20接收指定HTML文档42的文档接收部分。 In the present embodiment, URL register 12 and the HTML converter 13 constitutes the document receiving section for designating the HTML document 42 from the server computer 20 receives a request from the client computer 18.

在工作时,用户操作客户计算机18以在打印机17中起动客户计算机18与HTTP服务器11之间的通信,并根据HTTP服务器11的超级链接访问URL寄存器12的“由URL指示打印”的网页。 In operation, the user operates the client computer 18 in the printer 17 to start the communication between the client computer 18 and the HTTP server 11, and registers in accordance with the HTTP server access URL hyperlink 11 12 "indicated by the URL print" page. 这样,URL寄存器12通过用于接收来自客户服务器18的请求的HTTP服务器11以HTML格式提供“由URL指示打印”的空白表格。 Thus, URL register 12 provides "indicated by the URL to print" blank forms in HTML format server 11 receives the HTTP request from the client to the server 18 through. 然后客户计算机18通过指定在URL寄存器12中的HTML文档42的URL,请求打印机17打印包括内嵌对象的HTML文档42。 Then the client computer 18 designated by the URL URL register 12, the HTML document 42 requests the printer 17 to print the HTML document includes an embedded object 42.

所需的HTML文档42的URL通过URL寄存器12发送到HTML转换器13。 HTML document URL required URL register 42 is sent through 12 to the HTML converter 13.

参见示出HTML转换器13的操作的流程图的图3,HTML转换器13在步骤S100通过HTTP服务器41和网络22接收来自服务计算机20的具有由用户所指定的URL的HTML文档42。 Referring to a flowchart shown in FIG. 13, the operation of the HTML converter 3, HTML converter 13 receives the HTML document 42 having the URL specified by the user from the service computer 20 at step S100 through the HTTP server 41 and the network 22. 然后,HTML转换器13在步骤S101把HTML文档42压缩为多种包含可能包括控制码的字符、位图数据、以及内嵌对象的HTML构成元素。 Then, HTML converter 13 at step S101 the HTML document 42 comprises a plurality of compression may include HTML character control codes, bitmap data, and the constituent elements embedded object. 在步骤S102中,这些种类被检测以判断是否每个元素为可以被在其平台上转换为用于打印机17中的打印机语言的字符或位图数据。 In step S102, these species are detected to determine whether each element of which can be converted on the platform for a character printer language or bitmap data in the printer 17.

如果在步骤S102中判断出该元素为字符或位图数据,则HTML转换器13在步骤S103把该元素转换为打印机语言数据。 If it is determined in step S102 that the element is a character or a bitmap data, the HTML converter 13 at step S103 to the data element into a printer language. 另一方面,如果在步骤S102中判断该该元素不是字符或位图数据,即该元素为内嵌对象,则HTML转换器在步骤S200中通过网络接口16和网络22与打印机辅助服务器19中的对象转换器32进行通信,并请求对象转换器32把该内嵌对象转换为位图数据。 On the other hand, if it is determined that the element in step S102 is not a character or a bitmap data, i.e., the element is an embedded object in the HTML converter in step S200 and the network 16 via the network interface 22 and the printer 19 of the secondary server Object converter 32 in communication, and requests the object converter 32 converts the embedded object into bitmap data.

如果在步骤S200之后的步骤S201的判断结果为该内嵌对象被成功地转换为位图数据,则该进程进入步骤S103,其中内嵌对象被进一步转换为打印机语言数据。 Embedded object was successfully converted into bitmap data, if after step S200 that the determination result of S201, the process proceeds to the step S103, the embedded object which is further converted into the printer language data. 如果在步骤S201中判断处该内嵌对象不被转换为位图数据,则HTML转换器13产生伪位图数据来取代该内嵌对象数据。 If it is determined at step S201 that the embedded object is not converted into bitmap data, the HTML converter 13 generates dummy bitmap data in place of the embedded object data. 在步骤S104中,如果在整个HTML文档中的所有元素都没有经过上述步骤,则进程返回到用于其它剩余元素的步骤S101。 In step S104, if all the elements in the entire HTML document have not been above-described steps, the process returns to step S101 for the other remaining elements.

在HTML转换器13把所有在整个HTML文档42中的构成元素转换为具有或不具有伪数据的打印机语言数据,该打印机语言程序14把打印机语言数据转换为打印机引擎15可以处理的打印数据。 HTML converter 13 in all the constituent elements in the entire HTML document 42 into a printer language data with or without dummy data, the printer language program 14 printer language data into the print data in the printer engine 15 can handle. 因此,打印机17打印由客户计算机18所指定的HTML文档42,而不需要客户计算机18的任何帮助。 Therefore, the printer 17 prints by the client computer 18 specified HTML document 42, without any help client computer 18. 用于不能被转换为位图数据的内嵌对象的图像被伪数据图像所代替。 For the embedded object can not be converted to bitmap image data is replaced by dummy data image.

参见图4,根据本发明第二实施例的打印装置类似于第一实施例,只是由用户所指定的HTML文档42表示通过多个其中的超级链接层与HTML文档42互相关的多个HTML文档。 Referring to Figure 4, the printing apparatus according to the second embodiment is similar to the first embodiment of the present invention embodiment, except by the HTML document specified by the user 42 represents a plurality of HTML documents by a plurality of layers and wherein hyperlink HTML document cross-correlation 42 .

在用户要求打印机打印文档的操作中,URL寄存器12通过HTTP服务器11和网络22接收由用户和有限数目的从该HTML文档42追溯超级链接层所指定的HTML文档42的URL。 In the printer to print the document requires user operations, URL through the URL register 12 and received by the user from a limited number of the HTML document 42 specified traceable hyperlink HTML document layer 42 and the HTTP server 11 network 22.

HTML转换器13根据HTML文档42的URL和存储于URL寄存器12中的有限数目的超级链接层从服务计算机20接收HTML文档42。 HTML converter 13 based on the HTML document URL and stored in a limited number 42 in the layer 12 is hyperlink URL register 20 receives the service computer 42 from the HTML document. 然后,HTML转换器13把接收到的HTML文档42按照各部件转换为打印机语言数据。 Then, HTML converter 13 receives the HTML document 42 into a printer language data in accordance with the respective members. 如果HTML转换器13判断出该HTML文档42具有HTML转换器13不能在其平台上转换的内嵌对象,则HTML转换器13通过打印机辅助服务器19的HTTP服务器31与对象转换器32进行通信,并请求对象转换器32转换该内嵌对象。 4213 embedded object if the HTML converter 13 has judged that the HTML document HTML converter can not convert on its platform, the HTML converter 13 communicates via the printer 19 of the secondary server 31 and the HTTP server objects converter 32, and Object request converter 32 converts the embedded object. 然后,HTML转换器13根据嵌入该HTML文档42中的超级链接接收该HTML文档的所有URL,并对该HTML文档检测超级链接的层数。 Then, according to the HTML converter 13 receives the HTML documents embed hyperlinks to all 42 of the URL of the HTML document, and detects the number of layers of hyperlinks HTML document. 如果用于一个HTML文档的层数不高于由用户所指定的限度,则HTML转换器13循环地把该与其它HTML文档相分离的HTML文档转换为打印机语言数据。 If an HTML document for the number of layers is not more than the limit specified by the user, the HTML converter 13 cyclically with other HTML documents to the HTML document separated into a printer language data. 打印机语言程序14把打印机语言数据转换为打印数据。 Printer language program 14 printer language data into print data. 例如图像或字符数据。 For example, image or character data. 然后,打印机引擎15在记录页上打印数据。 Then, the printer engine 15 to print data on a sheet.

在操作中,URL寄存器12在接收到来自客户计算机18的请求后把HTML邮件发送给HTML浏览器21。 In operation, URL register 12 receives the request from the client computer 18 sends the HTML message to the HTML browser 21. HTML邮件是用于指定HTML文档42的URL和来自要由打印机17所打印的原始HTML文档42的有限超级链接层数的空白表格。 HTML mail is used to specify the HTML document URL 42 and blank forms to the original HTML document printer 17 to print a limited number of layers 42 hyperlink from. 用户指定HTML文档42的URL,并请求打印机17打印包含由在HTML文档42中的超级链接所指定的HTML文档的HTML文档42,该超级链接在该表格所指定的层数限度内。 User-specified HTML URL document 42, and requests the printer 17 includes 42 print, the hyperlink in the form specified by the hyperlink limit the number of layers in the HTML document 42 specified by the HTML document HTML document.

来自客户计算机18的HTML邮件被通过URL寄存器12发送给HTML转换器13。 From the client computer 18 is transmitted by e-mail HTML URL register 12 to the HTML converter 13.

参见图5,其中示出在本实施例中由HTML转换器13进行操作的流程图,HTML转换器13通过HTTP服务器41和网络22从服务计算机20接收具有由用户在步骤S100所指定的URL的HTML文档42。 Referring to Figure 5, there is shown a flowchart of the operation performed by the HTML converter 13 in the present embodiment, the HTML converter 1322 received from the service computer 20 HTTP server 41 via a network and having a URL designated by the user at step S100 that the HTML document 42. 然后,HTML转换器13在步骤S101把HTML文档42分解为包括字符(可以包括控制码)、位图数据和内嵌对象的多个特定的HTML元素。 Then, HTML converter 13 at step S101 the HTML document includes a character is decomposed into 42 (which may include a control code), and a plurality of bitmap data embedded object particular HTML element.

在步骤S102,这些元素被一个接一个地检测以判断是否每个元素都是可以在其平台上转换为用于打印机17中的打印机语言数据的字符或位图数据。 In step S102, these elements are detected one by one to determine whether each element can be switched on their platform for character data or bitmap data, the printer language of a printer 17. 如果在步骤S102判断出该元素是字符或位图数据,则HTML转换器13在步骤S103把该元素转换为打印机语言数据。 If in step S102 it is determined that the element is a character or a bitmap data, the HTML step S103 converts the data element to the printer language converter 13. 另一方面,如果在步骤S102判断出该元素既不是字符也不是位图数据,则在步骤S203进一步检测该元素是否为超级链接。 On the other hand, if in step S102, it is determined that the element is neither a character nor a bitmap data, at step S203 further detects whether the element is a hyperlink. 如果在步骤S203中判断该元素为超级链接,则在步骤S204判断是否当前超级链接的层数的限度大于0。 If it is determined in step S203 that the element is a hyperlink, then in step S204 it determines whether the current limit is greater than the number of layers of hyperlinks 0.

如果在步骤S204判断出该层数的当前限度大于0,则HTML转换器13在步骤S205重复自身调用,以接收和打印由在HTML文档42中的超级链接所指定的另一个HTML文档。 If in step S204 it is determined that the current limit of the number of layers is greater than 0, the HTML converter 13 at step S205 repeats itself calls, for receiving and printing by the hyperlinks in the HTML document 42 specified by another HTML document. 在该步骤中,当前URL由该另一个HTML文档的新的URL所代替,并且超级链接的层数的限度减1并被定义为新的限度。 In this step, the current URL is replaced by the new URL to another HTML document, and limits the number of layers of hyperlinks and is defined as 1 minus the new limit. 换句话说,HTML转换器13的另一个窗口被启动,其中超级链接的层数的当前限度是一个参数,并且另一个由该超级链接所指定的文档的URL是新的URL。 In other words, another window HTML converter 13 is activated, which currently limits the number of layers, the hyperlink is a parameter, and the other by the specified hyperlink URL of the document is a new URL. 在步骤S205之后,该过程进入到步骤S104。 After step S205, the process proceeds to step S104.

另一方面,如果步骤S203判断出该元素为内嵌对象,则该过程进入到步骤S200,其中HTML转换器13与对象转换器32进行通信并请求该对象转换器转换该内嵌对象。 On the other hand, if step S203 determines that the element is an embedded object, the process proceeds to step S200, the HTML converter 13 where the converter 32 and the target communication and requests the object converter converts the embedded object. 如果在步骤S201中判断出对嵌对象被成功地转换为位图数据,则该过程进入到步骤S103,其中该内嵌对象被进一步转换为打印机语言数据。 If it is determined in step S201 is successfully converted into bitmap data to the embedded object, the process proceeds to step S103, the embedded objects wherein the printer is further converted into language data. 如果在步骤S201中判断该内嵌对象不被转换为位图数据,则HTML转换器13产生一伪位图数据取代该内嵌对象数据。 If the determination in step S201 that the embedded object was not converted into bitmap data, the HTML converter 13 generates a dummy bitmap data in place of the embedded object data. 在用于该元素的字符或位图数据被在步骤S103中转换为打印机语言数据之后,该过程进入到步骤S104,并且如果在步骤S104判断出并非所有的元素都被转换,则返回到步骤S101,从而对HTML文档中的每个元素重复执行所有步骤。 After the character or bitmap data element is converted into the printer language data at step S103, the process proceeds to step S104, and if it is determined at step S104 that not all the elements have been converted, the process returns to step S101 , thus repeating for each element in an HTML document all the steps. 因此,只要超级链接的层数不超过由用户所指定的限度,则在由用户和超级链接所指定的HTML文档中的所有元素都被转换。 Therefore, as long as the number of layers of hyperlinks does not exceed the limits specified by the user, all the elements in the user specified hyperlinks and HTML documents are converted.

在步骤S104判断出该HTML转换器13把所有在整个HTML文档42中的元素都转换为带有或不带有伪数据的打印机语言数据之后,打印机语言程序14把该打印机语言数据翻译为打印机引擎15可以处理的打印数据。 After the step S104, it is determined that all the elements 13 of the HTML converter in the entire HTML document 42 are converted into printer language data with or without dummy data, the printer language program 14 is translated printer language data is a printer engine 15 the printing data can be processed. 因此,打印机17打印所有由在层数的限度内的超级链接所指定的HTML文档。 Therefore, the printer 17 to print all the hyperlinks within the limits specified number of layers of the HTML document. 对于不能被转换为位图数据的对象的图像被伪数据图像所代替。 For the image can not be converted into bitmap data object is replaced by dummy data image.
