sanei_ab306 supports the Mustek 600IIN which has it's own ISA i/o
card. However, this card is very similar to a parport. So I need a way
to access some ports directly and send data to them (e.g. 0x379). Can
this be done with libieee1284?

I had a quick look at ieee1284.h. What is "the name of a parallel port"?

As you asked for comments: Please don't use "//" for comments, if the
code should be included into SANE. This will make trouble with older
compilers on several platforms.
