How to access to LPT Port

I need to know how I can access directly to the LPT-Port in Delphi 3.0 We developed a program in Borland Pascal 7.0 and then transfered it to Delphi. In Pascal we used the "port" command. So what do we use in Delphi ?

Use AssignPrn like this

procedure Print;
var
  F: TextFile;
begin
  AssignPrn(F);
  Rewrite(F);
  WriteLn(F,'Hello world');
  System.CloseFile(F);
end;

You can write escape codes like this:

Write(F,#27#12)

Hello...just for an idea you could alos use this...

procedure Print;
   var
     F: TextFile;
   begin
     AssignFile(F, 'LPT1');
     Rewrite(F);
     WriteLn(F,'Hello world');
     CloseFile(F);
   end;
