Follow-up Comment #3:
Is this really still relevant, given that parallel-port computers are no
longer really available?
Yes, as InpOut32.dll, available as InpOutX64.dll for a 64-bit version of avrdude, enables redirection of bit-banging to any hardware, not only the parallel port but also USB-ParallelPrinter converters, without installing a global exception handler (that can do the same job but much slower). InpOut32 is more flexible than using giveio.sys but is a bit slower. Moreover, true parallel ports are IMHO still available on docking stations and industrial PCs.
