I have a old basic application that reads the parallel port that is connected to a timer(This is boy scout pinewood derby track) and will calulate the time from the start to the finish. It it possable to read the port like basic does? And If so how.
Thanks

You need the javax.comm package from the Sun site. For more specific information on how to get stuff done, a Google search on javax.comm should give you all you need.

It's a dirty job but somebody has to do it.
