This is a little parallel port tester done with pyVCP.

The files

upload:ptest.xml

upload:ptest.hal

To run this place both files in the same directory and open a terminal window and use the command

 halrun -I -f ptest.hal

upload:ptest-final.png

You can push the output buttons and change the state of each output. When you toggle an input it shows up on the screen.

Enjoy BJT
