+            <var>TPrinter</var> is a <var>TObject</var> descendant which defines an API for a printer device.
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            TPrinter provides properties and methods used to select, configure, and control the printer device. Most of the methods are declared as virtual, and can be overridden in descendent classes which implement specific features like: page description languages, networking protocols, support for graphics libraries, etc.
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            TPrinter uses a <var>Canvas</var> to position, format, and render output for the print device. A  <var>TPrinterCanvas</var> class is provided which extends the familiar TCanvas class with features for printer-specific usage. The <var>CanvasClass</var> property allows the printer to create instances of TPrinterCanvas or descendent classes.
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            TPrinter also provides a <var>RawMode</var> property which indicates that output does not use formatting or a page description language, and bypasses use of the Canvas class. Think of this as "Dot Matrix Mode".
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            Properties are provided which allow the printer device to be configure its output resolution, paper selection, page margins, etc. Methods are provided to perform printer control when processing print jobs, documents, and pages.
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            TPrinter is a base class. Do not create instances of TPrinter; an exception is raised when the ClassType for the class instance is TPrinter (and not one of its descendants). Use one of the descendants provided in the <file>printer4lazarus</file> package, like: <var>TWinPrinter</var>, <var>TCarbonPrinter</var>, <var>TQtPrinters</var>, <var>TCUPSPrinter</var>, et. al.
