vrf Low level I/O problems solved

Question asked by hansolofalcon on Oct 20, 2005
Hello from Gregg C Levine
For reasons that would take too long to go into I receive a magazine
for Linux (1) users. The current issue discusses the problems with
bringing back to life a damaged pin-ball game. In that article the
author discusses the methods he used to physically control the game.
He describes a custom card plugged into his computer that uses an
Intel 8255 Programmable Peripheral Interface device. And resources
given there will show the user how to actually build one he gives a
site name which will do that. Upon request I'll be glad to provide the
name of that location. Exploring the site further told me that users
of the original builder's card are using the io.dll that I received
information to use for communication with the parallel port. I am
convinced that is possible to adapt the whole idea behind the card and
that library to be used with VEE.
