    Controlling ports

    Is it possible for me to write a program that enables me to control the ports (i.e. parallel, serial, usb and etc...) of a computer by using C or C++ programs under suse linux 8.0?

    If yes, where can I read up (something like website, books and etc...) materials regarding the way to control all those ports?
    I know (moderate) how to program C but I'm super newbie in using Linux OS and I haven't try using C to communicate with my computer ports.
