    Serial / Printer Port Programming

    The Story:
    A project was presented to me and it involves Web Programming, Kernel Tweaking and A Kiosk Interface.. its all good..

    and all of a sudden.... my friend told me.. "Ahh also.. we need to control 7 lights to go on and off and that should be controlled by your system".....

    All Hell Breaks Loose!

    The Question:
    1) Is C the right tool for the job? (i dont want to go.. ASM on LINUX )
    2) My Guess is to control the on and off switch via Printer Port.
    3) Can any1 point me into some sort of a hardware/software/code that would do such thing?


    Tnx.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
