    Hi, just wanna ask if is there any application software program which is better than Visual Basic 6.0 in accessing the parallel port for interfacing? Thanx

    You need a language that permits hardware level access. Assembler or any of the Basics (there are several modern Basic variants that are pretty impressive - Power basic and XBasic come to mind). Quick Basic works great and has an awesome editor, but may not work under XP or Vista.

    VB tends to concern itself with making screens for Windows.
