val init : unit -> unit

init () initializes the HIDAPI library. Calling it is not strictly necessary, however this function should be called at the beginning of execution however, if there is a chance of HIDAPI handles being opened by different threads simultaneously.

val deinit : unit -> unit

deinit () frees all of the static data associated with HIDAPI. It should be called at the end of execution to avoid memory leaks.

val enumerate : ?vendor_id:int -> ?product_id:int -> unit -> device_info list

enumerate ?vendor_id ?product_id () is the list of HID devices attached to the system. The optional arguments are a way to filter the results returned.

val open_id : vendor_id:int -> product_id:int -> t option

open_id ~vendor_id ~product_id is the device handle of HID device (vendor_id, product_id), or None if no such device exist or in case of error.

val open_path : string -> t option

open_path path is the device handle of HID device of path path, or None if no such device exist or in case of error. path can be discovered with enumerate or a platform-specific path name can be used (eg: /dev/hidraw0 on Linux).

val open_id_exn : vendor_id:int -> product_id:int -> t
val open_path_exn : string -> t
val write : t -> ?len:int -> Bigstring.t -> ( int, string ) result

write t buf is Ok nb_bytes_written on success, or Error description in case of error.

val read : ?timeout:int -> t -> Bigstring.t -> int -> ( int, string ) result

read ?timeout t buf len is Ok nb_bytes_read on success, or Error description in case of error.

val set_nonblocking : t -> bool -> ( unit, string ) result

set_nonblocking t v sets nonblocking mode if v is true, or sets blocking mode otherwise.

val set_nonblocking_exn : t -> bool -> unit
val close : t -> unit

close t closes the HID device t.
