This really depends on what your goals are. What
operating system, which port (serial, parallel, USB,
PCI, etc). Also, what language do you program in?

Easiest for parallel/serial port interfacing would
probably be using QBASIC under DOS. If using
Windows, easiest would probably be VB (MSComm
control for serial, Inpout32.dll for parallel port if
using WinXP).

This topic comes up over and over again, so doing
a search of the board should give you lots to read.

All windows drivers are written in C, so all driver access are basically through system dlls. So the ideal language, and the most efficient one, should be in C.

I will suggest using C because all device interfacing is done best using it.It is fast.

c language is quite easy to use when doing interfacing with parallel port

you can also try visual basic

if you are using c pls note dat the speed of parallel port is slower than the speed of the compiler so insert proper delays between the statements
