Abstract

There is provided an output apparatus in which a character pattern of a bit map form can be selected and output or a character pattern can be made and output by arithmetic operating processes. The apparatus comprises: a receiver to receive a command from the outside to indicate which one of the character pattern generating methods is used; a discriminating circuit to discriminate a memory capacity in the apparatus in the case of outputting a certain character and a size of character to be output; and a selector to select on the basis of the memory capacity and the character size either one of the character pattern generating methods in accordance with the command from the outside which is received by the receiver or irrespective of the command from the outside. With the apparatus, the optimum character pattern which the user desires can be made and output by the proper method of the bit map form or the scaling form at a high speed with a small memory capacity at a high print quality.
