Whats the maximum speed for parllel port communication
I wrote a program something like this ( algoriuthm below)
Record the time
Write to parllel port 5000000 times 12
The program takes 11sec. Is that some what slow. I am getting the speed only as around 1Mhz. Also i am implementing the above using c. Is it the c overheads like increment of counter in for loop and stuff thats making it slow?
Should i switch to assembly for faster speed?
