We, like everyone else that wants to do this well, had to write a dll to
configure the parallel port.  It works well as an 8-bit digital I/O
interface.  Had to use the assembler versions of the inport and outport
commands, but once we overcame that it was quite easy.
There are several books (older ones mostly) that discuss how to configure
the parallel port.  We found these very helpful.
Hope this helps.

Drivers/Executable Files -> VEE

There have been some lab experiments.

There isn't.
