Device-USB This module is deprecated as of version 0.37. I have not had the time or need to update the module, and no one has been willing to take it over. This module has been superceded by USB::LibUSB, which supports the 1.0 version of the libusb API. This module provides a relatively complete Perl wrapper on the libusb library. Using this module provides an object-oriented interface to any installed USB devices. Obviously, the module requires a copy of the libusb library compiled for the target system. The module also requires a C compiler compatible with the Perl installation, because it uses the Inline::C module to create the interface to libusb. TODO The current version of the library does not fully support 'get_descriptor'. This method currently returns a binary string containing the data, the code to create a reasonable data structure has not yet been written. The device objects also do not contain pointers back to their busses at this time. This feature will be added once I am certain that it will not leak memory.
