Dear Friends,

    Where can I get information on how to access serial
    and parallel port in python?

    I have tried pyserial and pyparallel package. but it in 
    turn looks for "java communications" and jython I guess.
    also giveio.sys package needs to be installed. since 
    I don’t know the procedure and also java, I am facing
    issues at multiple levels. anyone for rescue?

I would advice you to take hints from the existing tools and then devise a module specific to your requirements. Working with excel depends a lot on what you want to do with the data that you are working on and so a single module is rarely all that you need. 

If you are on a windows machine, win32com is your best friend, because it will allow you to do almost everything with excel (charts, pivot tables etc etc, apart from regular row/col data management)

tip: on some versions of excel, the excel specific constants (xlFirstRow, xlFirstColumn etc) are not available readily after creation of the excel object in Python. You would be better off maintaining these variables and their values in your module separately. For more info on these constants, try MSDN.

Take care,
