I'm a more-or-less novice programmer, and I thought I'd tinker around with
parallel/serial port use.  All I'd really like to do is something very
simple, setting the pegs individually to "on" or "off," etc, much as shown
in this Windows inpout32.dll-utilizing program:

I've Googled around, and have learned enough to know that Direct-IO requires
a kernel driver.  But now I'm stuck, and I seem to beunable to further learn
from Google.

If I were to try and make a Linux app similar to the above mentioned Windows
app, how would I go about doing it?
