Can you elaborate on how you got this to work with a RaspberryPI? I can't seem to get codes out when it scans. I installed the D2XX drivers as per this (http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX/Linux/ReadMe-linux.txt) and successfully polled the board for details. But I'm hopelessly lost on how to get scanned codes to print to the screen when a RFID card is scanned. I wanted to create a bunch of curl style web hooks when cards are scanned, but don't really know where to start with the D2XX method.
Has anyone tried to make this board work with a RaspberryPi? On my mac I can just cat the device in /dev/ and get the codes out without issue for local script hooks. eg. A shell script that calls a remote web server via curl or something. It works great, but needing a mac or windows box to run this is overkill for some smaller sensor projects.
I purchased a Raspberry PI and would like to make this work with it. However the FTDI drivers only seem to be present in D2XX which seems to require I write a full C program to get things out of it and while I can poll the device stats I have no idea how to create a listener type script that will just print out the codes as they are scanned as simply as the Virtual Com Port type drivers. Has anyone done this?
No public wish lists :(
