Depending on neeeds, it may beinteresting to see an ethernet like cable to
connect. Why this?
If we have need to transfert a lot of data in very restric time interval,
eg CCD camera, the ethernet link is fast enough. The paralel port cables
are limited on distance for very high speed.
As exemple, a CCD camera builder in France may fournish its camera with
dedicated ethernet link for lower price that a paralel port and the
estimated time for transfer is great better.
