Since the development of printers the communication world has completely transformed. A printer is a device attached to a computer that transforms human design, text and graphics into a representation on paper. The printers are essential peripherals attached to the computer. The device work independent as well, one good example is the typewriter. This age old machine has been replaced by the modern electronic one. Printers are not completely independent and they too need accessories to function, these are also called as peripherals.
