Sensing and Control for hobbyists and schools: Connecting using the parallel port

Other pages in this site should get you all exicted about the sensors and actuators you can put into a control application. This page addresses some of the options for one of the ways to connect them the the PC which is the brains behind the system.

The page is new.. apologies for it being sketchy, and perhaps having rough edges.

Don't let the "joys" of Windows XP get you down. You CAN still access the parallel port, though what I know is restricted to using it mostly for output (8 bits). You can get a few bits of input, though, without great hassle.

There's a lot at the above referenced page... and more to come here, eventually. Sorry!

*    Don't bother with "How do I get rich?" That will merely return pages with "how", "do", "I"....

Please also note that I have two other sites, and that this search will not include them. They have their own search buttons.

My oldest site. (It's at Compuserve).
Ad from page's editor: Yes.. I do enjoy compiling these things for you... hope they are helpful. However.. this doesn't pay my bills!!! If you find this stuff useful, (and you run an MS-DOS or Windows PC) please visit my freeware and shareware page, download something, and circulate it for me? At least (please) send an 'I liked the parallel port use page, and I'm from (country/ state)' email? (No... I don't do spam) Links on your page to this page would also be appreciated!
