Thermal printer control module built to work with small serial thermal
receipt printers. Note that these printers have many different firmware
versions and care must be taken to select the appropriate module inside this
package for your firmware printer:
* thermal_printer_2168 = Printers with firmware version 2.168+.
* thermal_printer = The latest printers with firmware version 2.68 up to 2.168
* thermal_printer_264 = Printers with firmware version 2.64 up to 2.68.
* thermal_printer_legacy = Printers with firmware version before 2.64.

"""Thermal printer class. Requires a serial UART connection with at
least the TX pin connected. Take care connecting RX as the printer
will output a 5V signal which can damage boards! If RX is unconnected
the only loss in functionality is the has_paper function, all other
printer functions will continue to work. The byte_delay_s, dot_feed_s,
and dot_print_s values are delays which are used to prevent overloading
the printer with data. Use the default delays unless you fully
understand the workings of the printer and how delays, baud rate,
number of dots, heat time, etc. relate to each other.
