This is because there different handshaking schemes that can be implemented
on the Centronics interface. I don't have a copy of the IEEE specification
at the moment so I can't be more specific.
One of the big problems about the Centronics interface is that there are
2 specifications, which use the BUSY/READY signals in a slightly different
way. Another big problem is that the IEEE specification is an evergreen
document, i.e. it is constantly changing.
Hope this helps
