[PARPORT] User space ECP

Hello everybody,

Here is my question
Is there a way (somethink like ppuser) to access the parallel port
communication functions in a user (outside of the kernel) program, and

What I wish is to be able to call functions like open, close,
read_ecp_block and write_ecp_block inside SANE, without having to patch
the kernel nor rewrite the IEEE 1284 protocol for ECP from scratch.

Any suggestion is welcome. Thank you.
Patrick Rapin.
