Hi all

I was searching how to program parallel port but I have some errors. I'm using Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0. Here's my code
THIS CODE IS MODIFIED original isn't working either
Code:
/*     file:  ex1.c
       by HarshaPerla for electroSofts.com.
       Displays contents of status register of parallel port.
       Tested with TurboC 3.0 and Borland C 3.1 for DOS.
*/

#include"stdio.h"
#include"conio.h"
#include"dos.h"
short _stdcall Inp32(short portaddr);
void _stdcall Out32(short portaddr, short datum);

#define PORT 0x378

void main()
{
    int data;
    while(!kbhit())
    {
        data=Inp32(PORT+1);
        printf("Data available in status register: %3d (decimal), %3X (hex)\n", data, data);
        printf("\n Pin 15: %d",(data & 0x08)/0x08);
        printf("\n Pin 13: %d",(data & 0x10)/0x10);
        printf("\n Pin 12: %d",(data & 0x20)/0x20);
        printf("\n Pin 11: %d",(data & 0x80)/0x80);
        printf("\n Pin 10: %d",(data & 0x40)/0x40);
    }
}

I was using this site https://electrosofts.com/parallel/index.html and also part 2 on that site which explains how to use inpout32.dll
I copied inpout32.dll in my windows/system folder and in my folder where I saved program and I get this error while trying to run it

Linking...
parallel.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "short __stdcall Inp32(short)" (?Inp32@@YGFF@Z)
Debug/parallel.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
Error executing link.exe.

Also I noiced clrscr() and delay(10) doesn't exist so I deleted that

why did he write /0x08 .../0x10 etc?

I NEED SOME PDF OR SITE WHERE EVERY CODE LINE IS EXPLAINED BECAUSE I'D LIKE TO PROGRAM IT MYSELF.

inpout32.lib may be a C++ library. Try compiling your program as C++ instead of C.

The expression "(data & 0x08)/0x08)" is a clumsy way to give 0 or 1 depending on bit 3 of 'data'.

Looks like you are using it in DOS. inpout32.dll is a windows dynamic link library, it won't work in DOS

When you say "DOS" I assume you are talking about old MS-DOS, and not the Windows Command Prompt.
VC++ 6.0 builds Windows GUI and Windows console apps. You need a different compiler to create a 16-bit DOS program.
When you create a DOS program, you don't use any DLLs or inpout32.

Read more about the dll you are using at:

**broken link removed**

I recommend looking at the Borland C example.
