_inp, _inpw, _inpd

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

Important

These functions are obsolete. Beginning in Visual Studio 2015, they are not available in the CRT.

Important

This API cannot be used in applications that execute in the Windows Runtime. For more information, see CRT functions not supported in Universal Windows Platform apps.

Syntax

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

Parameters

port
I/O port number.

Return Value

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

Remarks

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 cannot be used in user code.

Requirements
