Including inpout32/x64 with pyparallel?

Post by njvack » Fri Mar 09, 2012 9:45 pm

Hi,

I'm working on a fork of pyparallel (unsurprisingly, python classes for working with the parallel port). My fork is here:

https://github.com/njvack/pyserial/tree/inpout

Historically, pyparallel included a driver called getio; however, this doesn't work on win64 systems. Inpout does, which is *awesome* -- thanks!

Would it be acceptable to package the inpout binaries from:
http://www.highrez.co.uk/Downloads/InpOut32/default.htm

in the distribution, so folks didn't need to download it from another source?

Hi,

It is fine by me - I don't think there are any "non-commercial" restrictions on the InpOut source or binaries. To be clear, I only ported to x64 and for my part there is no problem. I cant speak for the original author but from reading their site, anything non-commercial if fine too...

Good luck with your python stuff ;)

Thanks,
Phil
