UHID(4)                    BSD Programmer's Manual                     UHID(4)

NAME

     uhid - USB generic HID support

SYNOPSIS

     uhid* at uhidev? reportid ?

DESCRIPTION

     The uhid driver provides support for all HID (Human Interface Device) in-
     terfaces in USB devices that do not have a special driver.

     The device handles the following ioctl(2) calls:

     USB_GET_REPORT_ID (int)
             Get the report identifier used by this HID report.

     USB_GET_REPORT_DESC (struct usb_ctl_report_desc)
             Get the HID report descriptor. Using this descriptor the exact
             layout and meaning of data to/from the device can be found. The
             report descriptor is delivered without any processing.

             struct usb_ctl_report_desc {
                 int     size;
                 u_char  data[1024]; /* filled data size will vary */
             };

     USB_SET_IMMED (int)
             Sets the device in a mode where each read(2) will return the
             current value of the input report. Normally a read(2) will only
             return the data that the device reports on its interrupt pipe.
             This call may fail if the device does not support this feature.

     USB_GET_REPORT (struct usb_ctl_report)
             Get a report from the device without waiting for data on the in-
             terrupt pipe. The report field indicates which report is request-
             ed. It should be UHID_INPUT_REPORT, UHID_OUTPUT_REPORT, or
             UHID_FEATURE_REPORT. This call may fail if the device does not
             support this feature.

             struct usb_ctl_report {
                     int report;
                     u_char  data[1024];     /* used data size will vary */
             };

     USB_SET_REPORT (struct usb_ctl_report)
             Set a report in the device. The report field indicates which re-
             port is to be set. It should be UHID_INPUT_REPORT,
             UHID_OUTPUT_REPORT, or UHID_FEATURE_REPORT. This call may fail if
             the device does not support this feature.

     Use read(2) to get data from the device. Data should be read in chunks of
     the size prescribed by the report descriptor.

     Use write(2) send data to the device. Data should be written in chunks of
     the size prescribed by the report descriptor.
