Hello all, I have a question. Say i want to interface a stepper motor (6 leads) with my parallel port. To make the motor spin I would need to utilize 6 outputs from myparallel port. What if I can't afford to give up this many pins? Would it be possible to program a microcontroller to control the stepper? What I have in mind is use one pin on the parallel port to signal the micro controler. Every time the microcontroler sees a pulse from the PC it advances the stepper one step. Is this idea at all possible? Any other ides would be helpful, thanks in advance, Lucas.
