Question Bar Code Reader Device Driver Development


Hi All,
I'm starting to develop a Device Driver for a Bar Code Reader. This hardware is connected by the serial port.
My doubt is what is the best way to do this: Using the tty interface <linux/tty_driver.h> or I had also read something like uart device drivers "uart_register_driver()", but I don't know if it is too old.
Please, let my know if there is another way to do this.

Just for you to know:
Kernel Version: 2.6.15
Distro: Ubuntu
Bar Code: Metrologic MS9520

Thanks in advance.
Ulises

You could look at the code for Kbarcode. It's a KDE utility so you can probably find it at kde.org or kde-apps.org or something like that.
