My name is vijay, please dont neglect my e-mail. I have a quention on parallel port. I will be thank full to you, if you reply to my mail. My question is, It is possible to determine the address in the data lines(D0-D7) of our parallel port(D-25,female), which is connected to our PC? Is there any controle word, so that i can get the address in data lines(D0-D7)? It is necessary to enable any options in BIOS, to receive the address in the parallel port? How can i connect the number of terminal to my parallel port? and How can i determine(get) the address in parallel port, when a perticular terminals is enabled? If i use socket programming exactly how can i determine(get) the address of diffrent ports in my parallel port ? It is necessary that, i should decode or encode the obtained informations(data) when i connect the barcode reader to parallel port? Where can i find the realated documents for this? I kindly requesting to provide a good soultion for this by giving the some sample program in C(Turbo c) and Java. Thanking you, waiting for your reply, With regards, Vijay D _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
