We already have the driver, for serial anyway. The blazer uses the bns
driver. It sounds from what you said like it wouldn't be straight
forward to open the parallel port instead of the serial port, and just
start writing to it. I thought actually that using the parallel port
is more straight forward, since there are no parameters like baudrate,
stopbits, parity, and handshaking to set. Am I totally off here?
