I have a Canon MP250 printer which can scan, copy, and print. I want to create my own ScanGear of a direct program to instruct the printer to print, and scan. I do have the disc that came with the printer but I just want to play around with it and like create my own app that will send printing commands to the printer and scanning commands to the printer to scan documents.
The main idea is not to use any of their software but be able to communicate with it and still do the printing, scanning functions as if I had installed their software's. I don't want to have their scangear on my laptop but rather create the program that will directly communicate with the device.
Anyone know how I can create this app or any link, documentation or anything that may point to the right direction with clues.
