Oh, I'm using Win2k(server..) and using python 2.0,

and want to use parallel port...

I looked at those archives which you suggested, but there's no direct

-- or  I  don't know if its answer :)

Do I have to use c code to use parallel port on windows?..

If I have to use c, just give me brief sample for it... ;-)

if not, tell me how can I deal with parallel port with python...

Thanks alot, in advance
