I am not aware of any LPT support or existed libraries at Erlang.
The solution would be OS dependent. BTW, what is OS you are doing development? 

All-in-all, I am afraid that you have to procedure with NIF development.
Please see the following link about NIF development:


If you happened to do Linux then I would recommend to look into following project.
I use direct memory I/O (no linux kernel drivers are needed)

Best Regards,
