I have checked (thanks for the advise) and found that ioperm 0.4.1 is
installed. I am using cygwin 1.5.15-1 and "gcc" and "make" to build things.
I am logged in with a user that has administrator rights, though not
as "administrator" itself.
Is there anything that one needs to configure in Windows to help enable
parallel port access cygwin? Is there a need for "DOS printing support" to be
turned on or anything.
