Title: EMULATION DEVICE AND EMULATION PROGRAM
Abstract:
The purpose of the present invention is to allow carrying out, efficiently and with fewer work-hours, development of emulation programs which are required when changing combinations of host devices and printers to be connected. Provided is an emulation device, comprising: a first conversion unit 31 which converts source command data which is generated with a printer driver 12 of a host device into interim command data which is formed from a printer-independent specific command architecture; and a second conversion unit 32 which converts the interim command data which is generated by the first conversion unit 31 to target command data which is formed from a command architecture which corresponds to a printer to be connected to the host device. Thus, it is possible to separately and efficiently carry out the development of an emulation program which corresponds to the first conversion unit 31 and the development of an emulation program which corresponds to the second conversion unit 32.
