inp() outp()

how do I use these in linux. I cannot seem to find them.
are they in a different header file. In DOS I thought they in stdio.h ?

Yes. The answer to your problem is to write in asm. Here is an assembly example to perform an input and output operation.  Write the code inline such as:

This example shows how to read a pixel in Read Mode 0

     mov   dx, 3ceh
     mov   al 4
     out   dx, al
     inc   dx
     mov   cx, 4
     xor   al,al

     out   dx, al
     mov   ah, si
     mov   es:di, ah
     inc   di
     inc   al
     loop  next_bit_plane

I didn't include comments because the point was just to show you how to write an inline asm routine using the input/output commands.

Just insert into a function and everything will work fine, aside from the slight overhead of pushing everything onto the stack and popping it afterwards.
They are not standard functions - please look in any standard C reference.  It sounds like your c compiler/library had some extra functions and that they included them in stdio.h which was really setting you up for the fall that has now happened.

If you share with us what they do someone may know of an alternative that will do the same.

inp() and outp()  are in conio.h  I am trying to read info from a port and send info to a port.
in linux.

You will not find these in linux environ.. they are not ansi standard,
microsoft c had them in prototyped in conio.h. and compatability listed was DOS only.
I do not believe there is an ansi standard function to do the job that these functions did
you may have to write a bit of assemby to accomplish the same function.

thank you
You could use inp_b() and outp_b() from <asm/io.h> instead...
