Title: PRINTING METHOD, PRINTING PROGRAM, AND PRINTING SYSTEM
Abstract:
According to the present invention, a server device: receives, from a terminal, first intermediate format data generated on the basis of print data; generates second intermediate format data from the first intermediate format data by converting information corresponding to print settings common to a plurality of printers managed by the server device into print setting information compatible with the plurality of printers; identifies an output printer from among the plurality of printers upon receiving information relating to a destination to which the print data is to be output; determines whether the second intermediate format data is compatible with the output printer; and, depending on the determination result, may generate third intermediate format data compatible with the output printer from the second intermediate format data. If the server device has generated the third intermediate format data, the server device transmits, to the output printer, either the third intermediate format data or converted print format data obtained by the server device on the basis of the third intermediate format data.
