Question can i handle interrupts

Hi guys,
I want to write one application which access the device that is interfaced to the parallel port. I want to handle the interrupts generated by that device.
Can i able to handle the interrupts generated by the device in the user mode application or else i have to write a driver for that device.
Can any one answer that applications accessing parallel port handle interrupts generated by the device.I am using Fedora Linux 2.6.9 kernel

I think u can solve it by both the methods. Writing a driver and without writing a driver. Later one I dont know but can help you in former one.
You go thru request_irq, free_irq functions.
Still any doubt get back to me
