O.K. Most of the interesting things should be found in the /proc.
But sometimes it is easier to use a program like sensors for collecting and formatting the informations.
For the shell you mean this wiki: http://wiki.winehq.org/Shell32 ?

It is not so easy to understand the difference between the kernel drivers for the parallel port.
At least all kernel-drivers seem to access the parport driver.
With lsmod i can see that the kerneldriver parport is used by ppdev, lp, parport_pc

Additional i had found some links that helps understanding the stuff:


152	modes	Parallel port's hardware modes, comma-separated,
153			meaning:
155			PCSPP		PC-style SPP registers are available.
156			TRISTATE	Port is bidirectional.
157			COMPAT		Hardware acceleration for printers is
158					available and will be used.
159			EPP		Hardware acceleration for EPP protocol
160					is available and will be used.
161			ECP		Hardware acceleration for ECP protocol
162					is available and will be used.
163			DMA		DMA is available and will be used.


155	  PARPORT_MODE_TRISTATE		The data drivers may be turned off.
156					This allows the data lines to be used
157					for reverse (peripheral to host)
158					transfers.

Parapin makes it easy to write C code under Linux that controls individual pins on a PC parallel port. This kind of control is very useful for electronics projects that use the PC's parallel port as a generic digital I/O interface.

The state of this project that it is totally and completely dead!
