Talking to USB Devices for Fun and Profit


Hello,

As the title implies , I'm looking for a descriptive manual/guide etc...
that outlines in detail from tip to toe , the basic how-to for communicating with usb devices of any kind regardless of there function.

The Complexity or depth of this guide is not an issue , as long as it's a single fully complete descriptive manual that contains all needed information.

I do possess a long programming experience gained with a lot of languages and previous projects , presenting code is not necessary if the theory is displayed.

Note: I'm looking for something generic that would fit any hardware frame or device supporting usb.

Cheers

Hi,

I think you will be lucky if you would find such a guide. If so send me the link.

As for information you could look at the 'Device section' for 'USB:' in the 'Slackware-Links'. More than just Slackware® links!

Hi

As far as I am aware there are no generic "frame" type solutions available for USB device communication programming.

If you would like a place to start your research may I recommend that you download and read the USB 2.0 specification. You can find a copy at
http://www.usb.org/developers/docs/

Regards

Chris
