       Device::USB::Bus - Use libusb to access USB devices.


       Version 0.37


       This class encapsulates the USB bus structure and provides methods for retrieving data
       from it. This class is not meant to be used alone, it is part of the Device::USB package.

       Device:USB:LibUSB provides a Perl wrapper around the libusb library. This supports Perl
       code controlling and accessing USB devices.

           use Device::USB;

           my $usb = Device::USB->new();

           foreach my $bus ($usb->list_busses())
               print $bus->dirname(), ":\n";
               foreach my $dev ($bus->devices())
                   print "\t", $dev->filename(), "\n";


       This module provides a Perl interface to the bus structures returned by the libusb
       library. This library supports a read-only interface to the data libusb returns about a
       USB bus.


           Return the directory name associated with this bus.

           Return the location value associated with this bus.

           In array context, it returns a list of Device::USB::Device objects representing all of
           the devices on this bus. In scalar context, it returns a reference to that array.

           Find a particular USB device based on the supplied predicate coderef. If more than one
           device would satisfy the predicate, the first one found is returned.

               the predicate used to select a device

           returns a device reference or undef if none was found.

       list_devices_if This method provides a flexible interface for finding devices. It takes a
       single coderef parameter that is used to test each discovered device. If the coderef
       returns a true value, the device is returned in the list of matching devices, otherwise it
       is not.
               coderef to test devices.

           For example,

               my @devices = $bus->list_devices_if(
                   sub { Device::USB::CLASS_HUB == $_->bDeviceClass() }

           Returns all USB hubs found on this bus. The device to test is available to the coderef
           in the $_ variable for simplicity.


       This is an explanation of the diagnostic and error messages this module can generate.


       This module depends on the Carp and Device::USB, as well as the strict and warnings
       pragmas. Obviously, libusb must be available since that is the entire reason for the
       module's existence.
