Please help me program the parallel port
« on: December 04, 2011, 11:17:43 am »
Hello , i have  to make a project in C++ Builder 6, using NrComm library i have to program the parallel port, for the start i have just to turn on and off some leds that are connected to the data pins of the parallel port. Can anyone please help me write the code , i dont know how to use this library at all. If anyone can give me some details would be great.
I hope is not a stupid topic as i think it is , but i really need help with this . 
Thank you!

I did my best to understand the sample project but i cant understand it , i see the interface that is created and thats all :|. The code has no comments to help you understand it, im not the best programmer so im just confused and dont know what to do :). I still cant see how i can acces the pins of the parallel port, i dont even know how to include the library into my project. Please if u can tell me those things, would be a great thing.
