Good morning!

You can target hiddev0 using C.
What are you going to use it for?
What is the end goal?
Do you have any experience in programming?
Do you have any experience using Linux?
What IDE are you going to use?
What linux distribution are you using?
Are you using the gcc or another toolchain?
Have you read these and these?

etc.

We don't mind helping you. at all. I even enjoy helping people, but you do have to put in the effort.

Cheers!
