    Parallel Port to USB controller and outb()

    Hi guys,

    From what I've tried and read I can't use outb() or inb() to control a parallel port (which connects via usb).

    Any body know how to control a parallel port for systems without a physical parallel port connector (and hence have to buy and use a parallel port to usb converter).

    Thx in advance.

    In what way do you want to control the port? Is the port already registered and usable via the kernel and devfs?
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
