I'm currently writing an "usermode" device driver for an USB device (a
voip phone) using libusb (a c library) under linux. There's a pascal
unit with the translated headers (don't remember where but google is
your friend) and it's working quite well, there should also be a windows
version of the library.
The only downside it that the current (quite old) version of the library
doesn't do asynch i/o. With my device I can use 2 threads (one for
writing and one for reading) but it's not guaranteed to work in every case.
A: Because it destroys the flow of the conversation
Q: Why is it bad?
A: No, it's bad.
Q: Should I top post in replies to mailing lists?
