libusbUSB access library

LIBRARY

USB access library (libusb, -lusb)

SYNOPSIS

#include <libusb.h>

DESCRIPTION

The libusb library contains interfaces for directly managing a usb device. The current implementation supports v1.0 of the libusb API.

LIBRARY INITIALISATION / DEINITIALISATION

int libusb_init(libusb_context, **ctx) This function initialises libusb. It must be called at the beginning of the program, before other libusb routines are used. This function returns 0 on success or LIBUSB_ERROR on failure.
void libusb_exit(libusb_context *ctx) Deinitialise libusb. Must be called at the end of the application. Other libusb routines may not be called after this function.
const char * libusb_strerror(int code) Get the ASCII representation of the error given by the code argument. This function does not return NULL.
const char * libusb_error_name(int code) Get the ASCII representation of the error enum given by the code argument. This function does not return NULL.
void libusb_set_debug(libusb_context *ctx, int level) Set the debug level to level.
ssize_t libusb_get_device_list(libusb_context *ctx, libusb_device ***list) Populate list with the list of usb devices available, adding a reference to each device in the list. All the list entries created by this function must have their reference counter decremented when you are done with them, and the list itself must be freed. This function returns the number of devices in the list or a LIBUSB_ERROR code.
void libusb_free_device_list(libusb_device **list, int unref_devices) Free the list of devices discovered by libusb_get_device_list. If unref_device is set to 1 all devices in the list have their reference counter decremented once.
uint8_t libusb_get_bus_number(libusb_device *dev) Returns the number of the bus contained by the device dev.
uint8_t libusb_get_device_address(libusb_device *dev) Returns the device_address contained by the device dev.
enum libusb_speed libusb_get_device_speed(libusb_device *dev) Returns the wire speed at which the device is connected. See the LIBUSB_SPEED_XXX enums for more information. LIBUSB_SPEED_UNKNOWN is returned in case of unknown wire speed.
int libusb_get_max_packet_size(libusb_device *dev, unsigned char endpoint) Returns the wMaxPacketSize value on success, LIBUSB_ERROR_NOT_FOUND if the endpoint does not exist and LIBUSB_ERROR_OTHERS on other failure.

void libusb_unref_device(libusb_device *dev) Decrement the reference counter of the device dev.
int libusb_open(libusb_device *dev, libusb_device_handle **devh) Open a device and obtain a device_handle. Returns 0 on success, LIBUSB_ERROR_NO_MEM on memory allocation problems, LIBUSB_ERROR_ACCESS on permissions problems, LIBUSB_ERROR_NO_DEVICE if the device has been disconnected and a LIBUSB_ERROR code on other errors.
libusb_device_handle * libusb_open_device_with_vid_pid(libusb_context *ctx, uint16_t vid, uint16_t pid) A convenience function to open a device by vendor and product IDs vid and pid. Returns NULL on error.
void libusb_close(libusb_device_handle *devh) Close a device handle.
libusb_device * libusb_get_device(libusb_device_handle *devh) Get the device contained by devh. Returns NULL on error.
int libusb_get_configuration(libusb_device_handle *devh, int *config) Returns the bConfiguration value of the current configuration. Returns 0 on success, LIBUSB_ERROR_NO_DEVICE if the device has been disconnected and a LIBUSB_ERROR code on error.
int libusb_set_configuration(libusb_device_handle *devh, int config) Set the active configuration to config for the device contained by devh. This function returns 0 on success, LIBUSB_ERROR_NOT_FOUND if the requested configuration does not exist, LIBUSB_ERROR_BUSY if the interfaces are currently claimed, LIBUSB_ERROR_NO_DEVICE if the device has been disconnected and a LIBUSB_ERROR code on failure.
int libusb_claim_interface(libusb_device_handle *devh, int interface_number) Claim an interface in a given libusb_handle devh. This is a non-blocking function.

int libusb_release_interface(libusb_device_handle *devh, int interface_number) This function releases an interface. All the claimed interfaces on a device must be released before closing the device. Returns 0 on success, LIBUSB_ERROR_NOT_FOUND if the interface was not claimed, LIBUSB_ERROR_NO_DEVICE if the device has been disconnected and LIBUSB_ERROR on failure.
int libusb_set_interface_alt_setting(libusb_device_handle *dev, int interface_number, int alternate_setting) Activate an alternate setting for an interface. Returns 0 on success, LIBUSB_ERROR_NOT_FOUND if the interface was not claimed or the requested setting does not exist, LIBUSB_ERROR_NO_DEVICE if the device has been disconnected and a LIBUSB_ERROR code on failure.

Returns 0 on success, LIBUSB_ERROR_NOT_FOUND if no kernel driver is attached to the given interface and LIBUSB_ERROR_INVALID_PARAM if the interface does not exist. This function is non-portable. The buffer pointed to by name is only zero terminated on success.
int libusb_detach_kernel_driver(libusb_device_handle *devh, int interface) or int libusb_detach_kernel_driver_np(libusb_device_handle *devh, int interface) Detach a kernel driver from an interface.

On error a LIBUSB_ERROR code is returned, for example LIBUSB_ERROR_TIMEOUT if the transfer timed out, LIBUSB_ERROR_PIPE if the control request was not supported, LIBUSB_ERROR_NO_DEVICE if the device has been disconnected and another LIBUSB_ERROR code on other failures. The LIBUSB_ERROR codes are all negative.
int libusb_bulk_transfer(struct libusb_device_handle *devh, unsigned char endpoint, unsigned char *data, int length, int *transferred, unsigned int timeout) Perform an USB bulk transfer.

USB EVENTS

int libusb_try_lock_events(libusb_context *ctx) Try to acquire the event handling lock. Returns 0 if the lock was obtained and 1 if not.
void libusb_lock_events(libusb_context *ctx) Acquire the event handling lock. This function is blocking.
void libusb_unlock_events(libusb_context *ctx) Release the event handling lock. This will wake up any thread blocked on
int libusb_event_handling_ok(libusb_context *ctx) Determine if it still OK for this thread to be doing event handling. Returns 1 if event handling can start or continue. Returns 0 if this thread must give up the events lock.
int libusb_event_handler_active(libusb_context *ctx) Determine if an active thread is handling events. Returns 1 if there is a thread handling events and 0 if there are no threads currently handling events.
void libusb_lock_event_waiters(libusb_context *ctx) Acquire the event_waiters lock. This lock is designed to be obtained in the situation where you want to be aware when events are completed, but some other thread is event handling so calling libusb_handle_events() is not allowed.
void libusb_unlock_event_waiters(libusb_context *ctx) Release the event_waiters lock.
int libusb_wait_for_event(libusb_context *ctx, struct timeval *tv) Wait for another thread to signal completion of an event. Must be called with the event waiters lock held, see libusb_lock_event_waiters(). This will block until the timeout expires or a transfer completes or a thread releases the event handling lock through libusb_unlock_events(). Returns 0 after a transfer completes or another thread stops event handling, and 1 if the timeout expired.
int libusb_handle_events_timeout(libusb_context *ctx, struct timeval *tv) Handle any pending events by checking if timeouts have expired and by checking the set of file descriptors for activity. Returns 0 on success, or a LIBUSB_ERROR code on failure.
int libusb_handle_events(libusb_context *ctx) Handle any pending events in blocking mode with a sensible timeout. Returns 0 on success and a LIBUSB_ERROR code on failure.
int libusb_handle_events_locked(libusb_context *ctx, struct timeval *tv) Handle any pending events by polling file desciptors, without checking if another thread is already doing so. Must be called with the event lock held.
int libusb_get_next_timeout(libusb_context *ctx, struct timeval *tv) Determine the next internal timeout that libusb needs to handle. Returns 0 if there are no pending timeouts, 1 if a timeout was returned, or a LIBUSB_ERROR code on failure.
void libusb_set_pollfd_notifiers(libusb_context *ctx, libusb_pollfd_added_cb added_cb, libusb_pollfd_removed_cb remove_cb, void *user_data) Register notification functions for file descriptor additions/removals. These functions will be invoked for every new or removed file descriptor that libusb uses as an event source.
const struct libusb_pollfd ** libusb_get_pollfds(libusb_context *ctx) Retrive a list of file descriptors that should be polled by your main loop as libusb event sources. Returns a NULL-terminated list on success or NULL on failure.
