memory Smartcards on Linux


I'm trying to make work the USB smartcard reader: Cherry's ST-1044.

It seems to work with openct and pcsc, but as far I know this is only for Microprocessors smartcards and not for memory smartcards.

For memory smartcards it seems that is needed ctapi libraries, there is a perl module that use it.

But installing it seems to be needed the ctapi libraries of the card reader, but I cannot find them for my card reader (ST-1044).

I only want the card reader for store some information in the card and then a program will run taking values from the card as parameters, it's not necessary to encrypt anything. This is why I have choosen memory cards and not microprocessor cards.

So, my question is: Does exists the ctapi libraries for my card reader? If not, Is it useful buy a towitoko card reader? (Is there someone that uses Towitoko cards readers for memory smartcards?). Is there any guide that I haven't seen that could be useful for me?

Thank you so much in advance.
