    Hello from Spain, this is my first message to this
    list (sorry if my English is not very good...).

    I want to use parallel port to communicate with a 3D
    Laser. My linux version is Debian Woody 2.2.20 and I
    programming using C++.

    I created "parport0" making "mknod parport0 c 99 0" as
    I saw in internet.

    My code is:

    fd=open("/dev/parport0", 0_RDONLY | O_NOCTTY);

    mode = IEEE1284_MODE_ECP;



    but "fd=open(.....)" return -1 and errno = 19 (No such

    What can I do? Why parport0 isn't recognized if I
    created it correctly?

    Thanky you very much.

    PD: I don't know anything about linux (only the use of
    ls, cp, clear...)
