Hi Uwe,

I'm not yet an expert on Linux parport, but, just by conincidence,
I joined this mailing list last week because I have an *x-ray
spectrometer* that currently uses ECP to communicate with a Sun
workstation running SunOS via a third-party SBus card and driver
with DMA.

I am trying to port some of our software to Linux.

The parport driver does not currently support ECP mode,
so I will attempt to add this capability to it. I've
just started working on it. I can't make any promises,
but I will, of course, share my code if I get it to work.

By the way, what type of spetrometer are you working with?
