I know you all...[/gloworange]

    That sounds like it's highly operating system and/or compiler specific.

    I suspect that is from some DOS compiler.

    In protected-mode OSs you can't read the parallel port directly in this manner. You have to either use the proper method of accessing the parallel port driver (which may not do what you want), or gain direct I/O access.

    Use this link. It covers the topic of reading/writing to the parport. It also contains a custom library which contains specific exportable functions for Parallel I/O. http://www.logix4u.net/inpout32.htm
