Project goal: open source tools to drive BP programmers to enable more advanced R&D (ex: raster scan laser to find fuses)

Secondary goal: explore options to make high quality legacy parallel port units (ex: BP-1600) usable on modern computers. One good option might be to RE protocol and network them with a RPi

Parallel port

VM operation

Card: StarTech Parallel Card - SPP/EPP/ECP EC1PECPS

Without any programmer you get this:

Since there is no programmer attached to any LPT or USB port, the software will operate in the demo mode. If you are trying to use a programmer, make sure it is powered up and plugged into a parallel printer port (LPT models) or a USB 2.0 port (USB models). Use the File/Configure command to establish communications with the programmer.

Tried to use PCI express parallel port with VMWare. Got this (BIOS: bidirectional):

"programmer site 1 did not respond to reset"

VM performance very poor even before launching BP software. Gave up and went to real windows system

Hooked up EC1PECPS to native Windows XP t61 system and wokred fine.

Dying to read it? Well you probably don't want to: LN: its not super exciting, documents some bpdos stuff and basic setup

But feel free to throw out a line if you *really* want it scanned for some bizarre reason
