This has been tested with: * the PIC18F4550 on the development board from CCS with their example program. * the Fine Offset WH3081 Weather Station. It works on Linux, Windows XP and OS X. HIDAPI is a multi-platform library which allows an application to interface with USB and Bluetooth HID-Class devices on Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X. HIDAPI can be either built as a shared library (.so or .dll) or can be embedded directly into a target application by adding a single source file (per platform) and a single header.
