NAME

       dump_usb.pl - Use Device::USB to list USB devices.

VERSION

       Version 0.37

SYNOPSIS

       The "dump_usb.pl" program provides a relatively crude dump of the information available
       from any USB devices installed on the system.

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides a Perl interface to the C library libusb. This library supports a
       relatively full set of functionality to access a USB device. In addition to the libusb,
       functioality, Device::USB provides a few convenience features that are intended to produce
       a more Perl-ish interface.

       If called without arguments, the program lists all installed USB devices on all busses.
       This is just a Data::Dumper dump of the structures, so it is not the most user friendly
       output in the world. (However, the program was only intended as a quick hack to verify
       that Device::USB was working.)

       If called with arguments, they are expected to be a vendor id and a product id.  (These
       arguments can be in hex if you precede them with "0x".) The program searches for a device
       that matches that vendor id and product id. If it finds one, the device filename is
       printed, along with the vendor and product ids.

       If the program can open the device, it will also print the manufacture name and product
       name as reported by the device.

DEPENDENCIES

       This module depends on the Device::USB and Data::Dumper modules, as well as the strict and
       warnings pragmas. Obviously, libusb must be available for Device::USB to function.

BUGS

       The output format is extremely non-friendly.

       The program only returns the first matching USB device.

       Please report any bugs or feature requests to "bug-maze-svg1@rt.cpan.org", or through the
       web interface at <http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Device::USB>.  I will be
       notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make
       changes.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

       Thanks go to various members of the Houston Perl Mongers group for input on the module.
       But thanks mostly go to Paul Archer who proposed the project and helped with the
       development.
