Port of Adafruit_Thermal library to Spark Core
This content is provided by the library maintainer and has not been validated or approved. This is an Arduino library for the Adafruit Thermal Printer. Pick one up at --> http://www.adafruit.com/products/597 These printers use TTL serial to communicate, 2 pins are required.
Full tutorial with wiring diagrams, images, etc. is available at http://www.ladyada.net/products/thermalprinter/
Before loading the example code, or even opening the Arduino software, place the Adafruit_Thermal folder in your Arduino library.

This package was modified by Przemysław Grzywacz firstname.lastname@example.org in order to run on Spark Core.
- Adafruit_Printer constructor doesn't accept pin numbers anymore.
- Adafruit_Printer::begin() requires as first argument a pointer to a stream communicating with the printer. It can be for example a pointer to Serial, Serial1 or Serial2.
- Adafruit_Printer::printBitmap() fromProgMem argument is ignored, I don't know how data in program memory work in Spark Core.
I hope you find this port usefull.
