    Hi there
    I have brought an electronics kit which allows me to input output via the
    parallel port and the kit says to 'load basic and enter lines 10-90' what
    excatly is basic do i just use a basic compiler or what?

    if you could help that would be great

    thanks
    Nathan

    They probaby refer to GW Basic, though just about any language can write to
    the centronics port.

    If you are using Win9x, then QBASIC can be found on the Windows CD in
    the \tools\oldmsdos directory.

    Be warned though - if using Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP you don't
    have native access to the parallel port. To fix this you need to a program
    that simulate native access. Try one called UserPort. Once loaded you can
    use the parallel port without any further hassle.

    Yes, both Win 98 and Win 95 included QBASIC.
