parport_write - write a block of data to a parallel port
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
ssize_t parport_write(struct parport * port , const void * buffer , size_t len );
3. ARGUMENTS ▲
port to write to
data buffer (in kernel space)
number of bytes of data to transfer
4. DESCRIPTION ▲
This will write up to len bytes of buffer to the port specified, using the IEEE 1284 transfer mode most recently negotiated to (using parport_negotiate), as long as that mode supports forward transfers (host to peripheral).
It is the callerAqs responsibility to ensure that the first len bytes of buffer are valid.
This function returns the number of bytes transferred (if zero or positive), or else an error code.
