_inp, _inpw, _inpd

Inputs a byte (_inp), a word (_inpw), or a double word (_inpd) from a port.

int _inp(  
   unsigned short port  
); 
unsigned short _inpw(  
   unsigned short port  
); 
unsigned long _inpd(  
   unsigned short port  
);

port

I/O port number.

The functions return the byte, word, or double word read from port. There is no error return.

The _inp, _inpw, and _inpd functions read a byte, a word, and a double word, respectively, from the specified input port. The input value can be any unsigned short integer in the range 0 – 65,535.

Because these functions read directly from an I/O port, they might not be used in user code in Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. For information about using I/O ports in these operating systems, use the Win32 Communications API.
