Abstract The present invention provides a printer controller, printer control method, and data storage medium. Evaluating means in a printer controller detects whether a command data stream for printing image data to a printer contains a same data sequence with the scheduled data sequence, such as the data sequence of a real-time command. When the command data sequence contains the scheduled data sequence, the generating unit divides the command data sequence and respectively generates a plurality of command data stream segments not containing the specific data sequence but producing a plurality of printing image data identical to the image data of the original data stream to the printer; the sending unit then sends the plurality of command data stream segments generated by the generating unit to the printer.
