Does anyone know where I can get a BASIC program to control a moving
message display via a PC parallel port. I want a full program not just
the snippet of code to output data to the parallel port. There is a
NASM version at http://skywebs.com/~glenn/LEDsign.htm that I could
reverse engineer but hey, why reinvent the wheel?

Only if you really, really, really want to buy and build
this kit for the learning experience!

The BetaBrite electronic sign is $169 at Sams Club, and
includes Windows based messaging software to load messages
from a serial port.

Gee thanks for the advice. I can spend $AUD109 for the one here or I
can spend $AUD241 ($US169) for the Sams Club one. Hmmm, what to do...?
