OG exemplary drawing
 
1. An information processing apparatus for generating drawing data by using printing data and setting information about printing, the information processing apparatus comprising:
a plurality of drawing data generating units, each implemented by circuitry and configured to generate the drawing data based on the printing data and setting information for the apparatus;
a memory storing a program; and
a processor that executes the program to implement process of
converting the setting information about printing into the setting information for the apparatus,
analyzing information included in the setting information for the apparatus to select one of the plurality of drawing data generating units and controlling the selected one of the plurality of drawing data generating units in a control procedure corresponding to the selected one of the plurality of drawing data generating units, and
generating control data, as the information included in the setting information for the apparatus by using the printing data and the setting information for the apparatus,
wherein the control data is generated in a same form irrespective of the selected one of the drawing data generating units.
