    Will Delphi let you set and read individual output lines in the printer port? If so, it should be no problem.

    It does run under 2K, XP or Vista. It can do pretty much anything. However, to access parallel port under Windows properly you need to go through the Win32 APIs.

    The easiest way is to find a VCL component for parallel port, then you just need to drag and drop it.

    I've never messed with it. Look for instructions with the same function as PEEK and POKE in BASIC. They let you set and read bits at I/O locations, like the printer port.
