The sample program to use this DLL is developed using Visual Basic 6.0 and with a quick look at the source you'll know how can you perform I/O using this DLL. You'll see the exports InPort, OutPort, GetDriverStatus, and GetDLLStatus in action with their usage.
So finally we've developed a library that'll ease development of hardware accessing applications in VB and other RAD application development tools that may consume a DLL. I would not say that it's the most efficient way but certainly the most straightforward to understand and implement. Any comments and suggestions can be forwarded to me at Digvijay_Chauhan@hotmail.com.
