    : {

    [blue]In VC++ it will be:[/blue][code]
    void OutPortByte (UINT uiPortAddress, BYTE byteData)
    {
    _asm mov edx, uiPortAddress
    _asm mov al, byteData
    _asm out dx, al
    }

    void OutPortWord (UINT uiPortAddress, WORD wordData)
    {
    _asm mov edx, uiPortAddress
    _asm mov ax, wordData
    _asm out dx, ax
    }
    [/code][blue]So, you call it as:

    OutPortByte (0x378 [b]/*Why did you use 0x378[red]h[/red]?*/[/b], 2);

    Also, the port access depends on what address are you trying to access. Sometimes Windows does not allow these operations and you will get the [b]Access Violation[/b] thingy. In case your PC has some custom made equipment, like a robotic arm - Windows should not cause any problems. But if you are trying to do some graphics or sound or hard drives manipulation - usually, Windows will not allow it.[/blue]

    Thank you for help and...
    i just want to plug some diots to the parallel port. after that i will plug some device. (may be i will make a robot!)
    That's very good but i want to know c++ codes. is there any ready c++ code exist in borland or MS compiler for outport? These are asm codes (it can be use in c ) but if i know the c++ codes it should be very good for me.
    Thank you very much again for your help....
