    If you are REALLY interested in knowing how to work with the parallel port google "parallel port complete pdf". You may be able to find an ebook.

    It was written by J. Axelson. I bought it once. Everything regarding the parallel port is covered

    Jan Axelson only excerpts her book for free. Don't download the entire book from anywhere.

    Otherwise there is much valuable information for free on her site (lvr.com).

    I bought her USB book a few years back too. She does excellent work.

    Most of Axelson's books are available through local libraries.

    There are freeware "C++ parallel port drivers for Windows XP" which a google search will find. Then you just put the drivers in your code. :)
