I took a look at this. It looks great for low-rate access to the ports.
Unfortunately, it won't do too well for major whacking -- path lengths are
However, this is an excellent skeleton which you can extend.
The existing code performs a transition to ring 0 (Win9x/Me) or calls a
device driver (WinNT/2000) for every port I/O. You could add additional
options to the ring 0 code / device driver to perform much more processing
on one call. For example, you could read an entire scan line in one call,
staying in ring 0 / the device driver until the whole scan line (or N bytes)
has been read.
