Q: I have a compact device that wipes hard drives (it’s a “WiebeTech Drive eRazer Ultra”), then it gives me the option to print a label-sized report about the drive it just wiped. It does the printing via a DB9 serial port, which can be connected to a serial-attached label printer.
I’d like to capture that device’s printer output into a PDF file on my smartphone (Android). So, it seems there are two challenges: (A.) making the serial print output go from the device’s serial DB9 port, to either wireless (WiFi, Direct WiFi, or Bluetoothe), or directly to a Flash Drive, and (B.) interpreting the print output from that device, into PDF.
