libhid: A user-space USB HID access library written in C1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0]

libhid provides a generic and flexible way to access and interact with USB HID devices, much like libusb does for plain USB devices. It is based on libusb 0.1,thus it requires no special HID support in the kernel. Furthermore, it aims to support all operating system supported by libusb: Linux, BSD, OS X, and Windows (via libusb-win32).
