Is it possible to access an IrDA device as a serial device such as /dev/ttyUSB0?
the message from dmesg for the IrDA device:

I have two IrDA devices and they are the same, I want to read/write the IrDA device in C in order to transfer a small file from my PC to an embeded linux. But I don't know whether it is possible to find a driver to allow me to read/write them as serial devices or write a dirver to archieve it.
