Connect to a parallel port from Python.
Instances of the PyParport class provide a data, a status and a control method. Each method has a read() and a write() method. The write method take the value to write as an integer as argument.
from pyparport import PyParport port = PyParport() # To show the data of the data register: port.data.read() # To write a 255 to the data register: port.data.write(255)
According to the registers of the parallel port, the PyParport class implements the following methods:
You can change the base address of the port on object initialisation:
port = PyParport(base_address=632)
PyParport is available under the terms of the GPLv3.
