Anyone out there have any experience of programming the parallel
port on an Ultra 5?
The main problem is that although I'm connecting a 1284-compatible
device, the ecpp driver refuses to recognise it as such and drops
me into plain old Centronics mode, which I am then unable to change.
Has anyone else had similar experiences?
I'm not helped by the fact that the online manual pages don't
seem to correspond to the C include files, despite the patch
which reportedly fixes this already being installed :-(
Any advice, comments, code snippets etc. would be much appreciated.
