[visionegg] Re: parallel code update: works fine...but

thanks a lot, Andrew

good to know, that the high floating seems to be a hardware issue on all os.
with your updated parallel port code, I get the behavior, that the trigger is
only recognized when changing from +5V to 0V, means the code reads a logical "1"
on the negative slope of a signal change.
can you change this?

I will test the DaqLPT code

thanks and have a nice day

by the way: which demo shows a fixation cross between stimuli, so that I could
take it as an example for my paradigm?
