I have found a VBX to do the deed. For anyone interested it
is at

        ftp.funat.fi/pub/msdos/windows/visbasic/IOVBX.ZIP

Thanks to all those who mailed me with suggestions.

Check out the opencomm API. (You can open LPTx for output using the VB open statement).
Email me if you need more details.
