.Sh NAME
.Nm libusb
.Nd "USB access library"
.Sh LIBRARY
USB access library
.Pq libusb, -lusb
.Sh SYNOPSIS
.In libusb.h
.Sh DESCRIPTION
The
.Nm
library contains interfaces for directly managing a usb device.
The current implementation supports v1.0 of the libusb API.
.Sh LIBRARY INITIALISATION AND DEINITIALISATION
.Ft "const struct libusb_version *"
.Fn libusb_get_version "void"
This function returns version information about LibUSB.
.Pp
.Ft int
.Fn 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.
.Pp
.Ft void
.Fn 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.
.Pp
.Ft int
.Fn libusb_has_capability "uint32_t capability"
This function checks the runtime capabilities of
.Nm .
This function will return non-zero if the given
.Fa capability
is supported, 0 if it is not supported.
The valid values for
.Fa capability
are:
.Bl -tag -width LIBUSB_CAP -offset indent
.It Va LIBUSB_CAP_HAS_CAPABILITY
.Nm
supports
.Fn libusb_has_capability .
.It Va LIBUSB_CAP_HAS_HOTPLUG
.Nm
supports hotplug notifications.
.It Va LIBUSB_CAP_HAS_HID_ACCESS
.Nm
can access HID devices without requiring user intervention.
.It Va LIBUSB_CAP_SUPPORTS_DETACH_KERNEL_DRIVER
.Nm
supports detaching of the default USB driver with
.Fn libusb_detach_kernel_driver .
.El
.Pp
.Ft const char *
.Fn libusb_strerror "int code"
Get the ASCII representation of the error given by the
.Fa code
argument.
This function does not return NULL.
.Pp
.Ft const char *
.Fn libusb_error_name "int code"
Get the ASCII representation of the error enum given by the
.Fa code
argument.
This function does not return NULL.
.Pp
.Ft void
.Fn libusb_set_debug "libusb_context *ctx" "int level"
Set the debug level to
.Fa level .
.Pp
.Ft ssize_t
.Fn libusb_get_device_list "libusb_context *ctx" "libusb_device ***list"
Populate
.Fa 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.
.Pp
.Ft void
.Fn libusb_free_device_list "libusb_device **list" "int unref_devices"
Free the list of devices discovered by libusb_get_device_list.
If
.Fa unref_device
is set to 1 all devices in the list have their reference
counter decremented once.
.Pp
.Ft uint8_t
.Fn libusb_get_bus_number "libusb_device *dev"
Returns the number of the bus contained by the device
.Fa dev .
.Pp
.Ft uint8_t
.Fn libusb_get_port_number "libusb_device *dev"
Returns the port number which the device given by
.Fa dev
is attached to.
