Is there an Intent or Android SDK call to send a line cut command to the printer?

I looked at the printer related sample apps, and I saw a lot of examples of printing various objects including images, but I didn't see any examples of sending line cut commands. By a line cut command, I mean sending a command to the built in printer to perforate or cut the printer paper roll. For example, lets say you just printed a receipt, can we send a command to cut the paper after the printed receipt or does a human have to rip off the receipt from the roll? I'm not sure if the Clover Mini printer has the hardware to support this functionality.

In Andriod, you can give the command to the printer for printing the document in SDK. It is very popular because you can simply execute the print command.

Cover mini and the mobile printer sold for clover mobile do not have an automatic paper cutter. Clover station will automatically cut the paper when the receipt is finished printing.

To augment Jacob's answer, the Clover Android SDK provides higher-level print functions ... like print a receipt, or print an image. It does not expose lower-level printer functions like cutting. A cut will be performed automatically at the end of a print (if the specific printer has cutter hardware).
