Sir:

Check the article on our Website on parallel ports and obtain the VEE
peekpoke DLL from there ... you can use Peekpoke to get to the ports.

Note that we now have a master index on the website to help you find your
way around.

your name, who the recipient is supposed to be, and return-addressing
information ... trusting the mailer to make such things clear is not
reliable.
