Hi there,
I saw I have a /dev/port file. Looking in file system, I read it was for accessing to ioport. How can I use it to acces to parallel port ?
How can I specify the io port I want to work with ?

thanks

No you don't have to open the /dev/port
outb and inb are the assembler makros whih you can use.
