I'm using floppyfw as a firewall (it's a linux firewall-on-a-disk) and want it
to send some data to the parallel port via a shell script for me. As this
firewall only fits on a floppy disc I don't have enough room for gcc, and I
don't have linux on any other computer, I wonder if it would be possible to get
some program compiled for me. I have searched the internet for a way to control
the parallel port directly in a shell script and only found one entry (which
I'm not sure even works: "echo -n 1 > /dev/par1b"). Insteda I've found lot's
of gcc ways to control it, but these are not what I want.
So, does anyone have a executable, small program that takes one int argument
and sends that number to the parallel port? Or could anyone compile one for me?
If possible, I'd like a possibility to strobe the port if it's not too much
Thanx a lot,
