If the 370 has one or more printers, there would be a program per printer and a print queue server. Gates to the print queue server would be available to those with the right to use a queued printer. The printer programs would run in real time with the printer. If it is important to segregate the printers, one set of printers with one set of users, this may be done by providing one print queue server for each such set.

We currently think that we will print only thru printers attached to Tymnet. This will not involve kernel logic.
