 These functions provide access to the parallel printer ports (LPT1, etc.)



 The printer port addresses are stored starting at 0040:0008.  Printer

 time-out intervals start at 0040:0078.  See BIOS Data Area.

    Note: The BIOS offers no support for bidirectional parallel

          communications (though standard PC hardware has supported it

          since about 1987).
