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.
This package contains HIDAPI for Python 2.
