Adremo electrical wheelchair testutility

This code, for quite some part derrived from a small script jcwren once wrote for me (in 2001) tests the connection with an Adremo electrical wheelchair (http://www.adremo.nl). This wheelchair can be connected to the parallel port of a PC. Unfortunately the script will only run on Win32 systems, because it needs a Windows DLL to run. The files this script needs can be downloaded in one package from http://jouke.pvoice.org/files/adremotest.tar.gz
