Nibble Mode of parallel port? How to initiate a transfer

Post by bbiandov » Sat May 17, 2008 3:05 pm

Does anyone have experience with nibble mode on parallel ports?

From reading the doc I see that the PC actually has to pull the device meaning there is NO WAY for the device to initiate transfer to the PC unless the PC is pulling the device all the time?

My reading started here:

And it seems that the host (PC that is) has to be pulling the printer/device all the time?

Thanks
