Device::ParallelPort::drv::win32 - Windows 32 Drivers Version
This module uses the inpout32.dll common to Windows users to read and write to the Parallel Port. For futher details see Device::ParallelPort
Standard installation, but you also need "inpout32.dll" which may require either putting into your windows System directory, or at the location of your executable.
inpout32.dll actually comes from a 3rd party source and is freely available.
It apparently works on Win95, Win98, WinNT, Win2K and WinXP. The XP and other ptoected mode systems has been solved by the DLL automatically loading a Kernel Mode driver at initalisation.
NOTE - Although this is not mentioned on this web site, it may be necessary to have administration privs to load this DLL.
