DESCRIPTION
       This set of functions is for tranferring bytes in the relevant transfer mode. For ECP and
       EPP modes two types of transfer are possible: data and address (usually referred to as
       channel in ECP).

       The supplied port must be a claimed port.

       The supplied buffer must be at least len bytes long. When reading, the transferred data is
       stored in the buffer; when writing the data to be transferred is taken from the buffer.

       For reads (peripheral to host): if no data is available and F1284_NONBLOCK is not in
       effect, the inactivity timer is started. If data becomes available before the inactivity
       time-out elapses it is read; otherwise the return value will be E1284_TIMEDOUT.

       For writes (host to peripheral): if the peripheral is not willing to accept data and
       F1284_NONBLOCK is not in effect, the inactivity timer is started. If the peripheral
       indicates that it is willing to accept data before the inactivity time-out elapses it is
       sent; otherwise the return value will be E1284_TIMEDOUT

       The flags may alter the behaviour slightly:

       F1284_NONBLOCK
	   For reads (peripheral to host): if no data is available, return immediately (with
	   E1284_TIMEDOUT).

	   For writes (host to peripheral): if the peripheral is not willing to accept data,
	   return immediately (with E1284_TIMEDOUT).

       F1284_SWE
	   Don't use hardware assistance for the transfer, but instead set the parallel port pins
	   according to the wire protocol.

       F1284_RLE (for ECP only)
	   Use run length encoding. If the peripheral is in ECP mode with RLE, calls to
	   ieee1284_ecp_read_datamust set this flag in order for the RLE from the peripheral to
	   be interpreted correctly, and calls to ieee1284_ecp_write_datamay set this flag in
	   order to take advantage of RLE.

       F1284_FASTEPP (for EPP only)
	   Use multi-byte transfers. Several bytes at a time are transferred using hardware
	   assistance, if supporting hardware is present. The price of this increased speed is
	   that the return value will be less reliable when this flag is used.

       For ECP mode, a given direction is in force at any particular time, and it is up to the
       application to ensure that it is only writing when in forward mode, and reading when in
       reverse mode.

RETURN VALUE
       The return value is the number of bytes successfully transferred or, if negative, one of:

       E1284_NOTIMPL
	   This transfer mode and flags combination is not yet implemented in libieee1284.

       E1284_TIMEDOUT
	   Timed out waiting for peripheral to handshake.

       E1284_NOMEM
	   Not enough memory is available.

       E1284_SYS
	   There was a problem at the operating system level. The global variable errno has been
	   set appropriately.

       E1284_INVALIDPORT
	   The port parameter is invalid (for instance, perhaps the port is not claimed).

       If any bytes are successfully transferred, that number is returned. An error is returned
       only if no bytes are transferred.

       For host-to-peripheral transfers, all data is at the peripheral by the time the call
       returns.
