Hi everybody,
I've finalized the implementation of a parallel interface for AVR and now I'm looking to find a PC application to test it.
I have to mention: it uses EPP standard, Enhanced Parallel Port.
I'm wide open to your suggestions.
Thx in advance. :-)

Real men don't use backups, they post their stuff on a public ftp server and let the rest of the world make copies.

I think AVR325 included a PC test program ("hostepp") which sends
to the AVR whatever is typed at it, and displays anything that
comes back from the AVR. It expects to have access to the EPP I/O
registers, which may or may not cause trouble in WinXP (it was
tested under Win98).

Most programs that use the parallel port seem to either (a) assume
a unidirectional ("printer") data flow or (b) have a specialized data
stream.

I'm so stressed that I forgot AVR325 zip archive also contains a PC test program... :oops:
Thanx McKenney. :wink:
