USB Port (absolute nube question)

Are there tools accessible from AppleScriptObjC for sending/receiving USB data to/from a peripheral device?

Applescript can only access a USB device if there is framework available for it. A C library that can be used in Objective-C is not enough.


I have an aging USB switch, a PowerKey Pro 650, running via Rosetta which will soon be going away and Sophisticated Circuits does not plan to upgrade it so I was wondering whether I might speak a few simple commands to it. The daemon that normally handles it (which is scriptable) may not run without Rosetta.

If the C required is not particularly complex, and you know what it is, it should be easy enough to find someone to wrap it in Objective-C so you can call it from an ASOObjC project. Do you have access to the required C code?
