Lp - access PC parallel port from perl


Lp is a perl module for direct low-level access to individual bits the PC parallel "line printer" port. Using this, one can control LEDs, analog-to-digital converters, I2C busses, and such, all from perl programs. This is one of my first perl modules, written about 6 years ago.

Currently, Lp works only under linux, but porting to other unixes that have a full set of parallel-port ioctls should be straightforward.
