  Description     : Library that allows control of individual pins of parallel port.

Parapin makes it easy to write C code under Linux that controls
individual pins on a PC parallel port. This kind of control is very
useful for electronics projects that use the PC's parallel port as a
generic digital I/O interface. Parapin goes to great lengths to insulate
the programmer from the somewhat complex parallel port programming
interface provided by the PC hardware, making it easy to use the
parallel port for digital I/O. By the same token, this abstraction also
makes Parapin less useful in applications that need to actually use the
parallel port as a parallel port (e.g., for talking to a printer).

Parapin can be used in two ways - as user-space C library, of linked as
part of Linux kernel module.
