There is some info on parallel ports here which I found useful: http://www.beyondlogic.org/spp/parallel.htm http://www.beyondlogic.org/ecp/ecp.htm http://www.beyondlogic.org/epp/epp.htm (there are pdf-versions of the pages at the bottom of each page) STROBE/ is a pulse that is set low for a short period of time (1us) when data is valid on the output. I beleive you can set the state of STROBE/ manually aswell. I would guess the safest way to be sure that you may drive to parallel-port is to stay completely tri-state until the computer sends some kind of activation sequence. In the case of ECP/EPP I beleive these are defined, check the pages. Regards /Daniel Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
