  1. line-at-a-time printer

    A line-at-a-time printer is a type of printer that prints an entire line of text at once. These printers are typically high-speed and used for large volume applications. They might use various printing technologies, like dot-matrix or laser, but the distinguishing factor is that they process and print one line during each pass of the print head, rather than individual characters or dots. This feature makes them efficient for printing long documents.
