I was wondering whether any one had got any experience or software to
access the USB ports. I have got a rs232 scanner that I can connect to a
USB port. I would like to get it to work to read ISBN numbers so I can
put the details in a mysql database. I have done programming before
(java C shell scripts) but am quite new to ruby, what I have seen so far
is really good. I would be very glade of some help/or software I can
hack to do what I want to do with ruby as the language of choice.
