CueCat driver for the Linux kernel
The CueCat driver is a driver for the
It provides a standard /dev interface to read barcodes from one or more
:Cue:C.A.T.[tm] devices connected to your computer.
This driver has been created and is currently maintained by

Corrected the /proc/scanners/cuecat readback routine.
Corrected the AT to XT table for the PS/2 mouse CueCat and the serial port
CueCat, changed the default behavior of the USB CueCat driver and extended
the /proc/scanners/cuecat interface to support status readback.
Added 2 base64 codes that certain CueCat devices seem to use
Added support for the USB CueCat in the driver
Added instructions to build a pod to connect a CueCat on a serial port, and
completed read_cuecat to exploit the new feature.
Minor correction in the driver when compiling the kernel without proc
The driver now has an official minor and major numbers. It has a single
device file again that serves barcodes read by all the CueCat devices
connected to the system
CueAct can now handle different CueCat devices in different ways. Also
added wildcards in the CueCat ID and the barcode type
The decoder and the kernel driver have been completely re-architectured
to support 2 Cuecats, one on a keyboard port and the other on a PS/2
port. Check it out, 2 CueCats on the same PC !
Many bugfixes in the kernel driver.
Now the kernel driver can be built as a module
The barcode decoder now compensates for the "dropping UPC-E check digit"
bug in the CueCat's firmware
More barcode types supported by the CueAct utility (UPS & Fedex
tracking barcodes, magazines ...)
