Will a bluetooth adapter works in printer?

The bluetooth adapter has to have a slot to go into the printer, and the bluetooth must be set up properly in the computer sending the information to the printer. Sometimes, though, it may work on and off, meaning it may work fine one time, but just not work another time someone tries it. The bluetooth adapters aren't that reliable, and a cable connecting directly to the printer would be better. The bluetooth must be configured properly with the computer, and a printer driver must be on the computer.

What is C plus language importance computer?

All computers need a set of instructions that tell the computer what to do and how to do it. These instructions are called the operating system. Many different brands of computers exist made in many different ways. At one time, each one had its own operating system. In fact, some manufacturers created operating systems for each model of computer. Still, it was possible for some people to go in and change these operating systems and even replace them. Then someone developed the C language. It was soon discovered that C language could create an operating system that could be used on different computers. When someone wants to write a driver for a printer, he writes it using the C language. He can add one or two instructions for a particular brand of computer and it will work. Thus, the operating system for the printer is written in C. (The problem comes when you have a old printer and a new computer. The printer company is not going to hire a programmer to write code to send out free updates to make their old printer work on your new computer. They want you to buy a new printer!)
