Parallel Port Routines and Utilities A few months ago, Dan Mauch gave me a ZIP file containing some mighty useful programs for dealing with parallel ports. Of course, this is the first issue since then, but if you remember, Dan had discussed that these were simple but effective, and would make a great learning tool. Teachers take note!  Get paraport.zip by clicking here!
