>From the available information I have, there isn't anything which allows me to
directly do things through the parallel port. I can open a stream to lpt1 and
then do standard stream read/writes, but nothing along the lines of serial

Does anyone have any how-to's on parallel port programming (I need to be
reading individual pins) or failing that, if I use lpt1 within a program, will
the parallel port still be addressed on a non-Windows machine (under Linux for
example, my machine has the parallel port set as something totally different
to lpt1 and this is probably the case under MacOSX as well)

I know there is a parallel port dll out there, but the source isn't open so I
can't guarantee it working under Mono.
