More Ports

Some more I/O addresses (which aren't included in the above list yet) are here:

Other I/O Ports

A number of peripherals connect to the joystick/printer ports, and so, they do not include "own" I/O addresses. This includes hardware other than joysticks/printers - for example, mice, robots, audio devices, and simple network adapters. For a more complete list, see corresponding sections on Digital Joystick and Printer Port pages.

Aside from I/O addresses, there are some other important I/O signals, for example: NMI or INT.
