Many thanks for advises.
Can laptop pc be used with "usb to lpt convertion cable"?
+ Probably not.
The last line in wiki says pci plug in board on desk pc is good. Usb device can not be used. Wonder if this had relaxed over time as now?
+ I'd have updated the documentation if there had been a change.
By the way, lpt has about 4 digital pins for reading. Can the software configurated to read these?
+ No, it can't.
