[Tutor] Parallel port interface

We're doing a research project that involves controlling mini-windtrap
speeds and we're reading/writing data from the parallel port. 

What I've found so far on a fast Google search for "python parallel port"
showed me some stuff that I'd have to interface with Python through SWIG. 

If the program could be portable in Windows and Linux it would be a big
plus. We're thinking --- if it can't be written entirely in Python or with
modules that already have binaries for Windows --- in using a Linux only
approach (we, the programmers, use Linux only).

Any hints for modules I should take a look at?
