 PC parallel port interrupt driven


I'm searching some informations for setting up and handling the PC parallel
port in an interrupt driven fashion.

Someone knows where I can find some source code?

                                Thanks in advance, Matteo

The parralel printer port has an interupt but it has to be turned on in two
You have to set bit 4 of your printer control byte and you have to enable
interupt level 7.

The contol byte can be found by looking up your printer-port addres at 0:408h
and adding 2.

The interupt levels can be disabled by clearing bit 7 at port 21h

If this has be done you can create an interupt (15) by changing the acknowledge
pin (pin 11 I believe ) from zero volts to 5 volts.

Greetings Frank.

If this doesn't work I like to hear about it.
