Read/Write a register on a DAC Card.

I am using a PCL812G DAC Card and I want read and write the registers of this card.
With TP 7.0 or Pascal Object for Windows 3.1, the Port and PortW instructions was a simply way to do this.
How can I do this with Delphi 2.0 ?
On the same way, what are the new instruction Delphi for Intr instruction in Pascal
Thank's for your answer.

You may use Delphis inline-assembler. It is not recommended
to use any direct hardware access methods but in Win95 it usually
works but in WinNT you have to use some external driver to
access hardware because of winNTs security and whole kernel system.

But if you are using 95 then you may try this approach:

var
 i:integer;
begin
 I:=0;
 asm
  mov eax,i
  inc eax
  mov i, ex
end;

and the i is incremented by one. I haven't tested that with
inp and outp instructions but I think that they work just
like that.

If you are using WinNT you may want to go and check

for driver you to access hardware under WinNT.
