Nonetheless, that's exactly what I'm looking for, the datasheet on the DTP94. I'd really like to know how I can interface with the hardware through the /dev device + kernel module on my machine. > Graeme Gill. Thank you Graeme, there's lot's of good info in your response and -- even if I dn't quite have the tools to do what I'm looking for, I guess I'm learning something just looking into it.
