 Port (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A hardware port is an electrically wired outlet on a piece of equipment into which a plug or cable connects.
Hardware port trunking (HPT) is a technology that allows multiple hardware ports to be aggregated into a single group, effectively creating a single connection with a higher bandwidth.
These protocols use the ports to map incoming data to a particular process running on a computer.

 Porting
Porting is usually required because of differences in the central processing unit, operating system interfaces, different hardware, or because of subtle incompatibilities in—or even complete absence of—the programming language used on the target environnement.
Porting is also the term used when a computer game designed to run on personal computers is converted to run on a video game console, or vice versa.
One of the original objectives of the C programming language and the standard C library, for instance, was to ease porting of software by providing a common API to different and otherwise incompatible computing hardware.

 Hardware register - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The hardware register is contained within a certain peripheral unit, and presented to the central processing unit of the computer by means of memory-mapped I/O or port-mapped I/O.
Reading a hardware register involves accessing its memory- or port-address with a "load" or "store" instruction, issued by the processor.
In computing, a hardware register is a storage area for hardware I/O (input/output) of different kinds.

 Jan Axelson: Parallel Port Complete a jpoc computing book review
The author covers the port from the nitty gritty of designing and building custom hardware to connect to the parallel port to the higher level protocols such as the IEEE standard for daisy chain negotiation on the port.
More that that, the protocols that operate between the computer and the peripheral are standard and so something like the daisy chain protocol is relevant to any architecture that wants to use it.
Many systems now include parallel ports that are register compatible with the PC parallel port from a programming point of view.

The Alto was the result of a joint effort by Ed McCreight, Chuck Thacker, Butler Lampson, Bob Sproull, and Dave Boggs, who were attempting to make a device that was small enough to fit in an office comfortably, but powerful enough to support a reliable, high-quality operating system and graphics display.
The Alto has the interesting property of using software (often microcode) to perform many tasks, such as keyboard encoding and character generation, that are typically done in hardware.
And the Alto is one of the first personal computers that satisfies the needs of the computer scientist as well as the secretary or businessman.
