    Re: Introduction to Parallel port programming

    Use the search function that is provided to you on the forums! I have written a very basic Parallel port programing tutorial in 2 parts.

    If you find the tutorials, you will also find very useful links to other sites which provide in depth explanation. So search the forums for once.😉

    There is a very good book written by a person named Jan Axelson. The name itself is "Introduction to parallel port programming".

    The basic funda is that you will get memory address, like 8 bit. You can wirte into it and those bits will come out of the parallel port. For a parallel port there are 3 such 8 bit things. Once data port, one ocntrol port and one status port.

    The rest you learn from the book. Its a really good book .
