Okay, I ran the tracing, and tried it under spp and epp. There was no 'diff' on the
output at all from eithermode. Eg, i tried it using spp and the epp, reloaded parport,
did the dosdbg +T, and ran diff. No difference.
Would seem to suggest that the initialisation is using the same port setting (although
to be fair, I have
never noticed the parallel port come up as anything other than uni-directional
(spp) under dosemu (whatever
level i have run on)).

Will u/l the files to the incoming directory on as bantamcd.tgz
