Project Release Information
This release changes ioperm() calls to iopl() calls, to provide access to higher port ranges.
Sending raw data through the parallel port has
been implemented. The documentation was brought up
to date. Some necessary modifications to the
autoconf system were made.
A persistent problem was fixed, the man page short option was removed, some useless code was dumped, and a bootstrapping script was added. Minor cleanups were made to the source code.
This release fixes some problems with the daemon
checking the syslog option. The manual page was
moved to section 1, and the contextual help was
enhanced. Port selection was removed, since it has
been implemented automatically. The strobe funtion
was also removed, since it proved to be redundant.
Conditionals were inserted in order to break compilation in case certain required libraries are not found. The functions were generalised and the help system detailed. The documentation was updated including man pages and the howto. Most notably, pport now has experimental code for serial (RS232) ports.
PPort is a simple yet handy automation program and
