I want to write some software to go between inkscape and a plotter.
Specifically, I want to port graphtecprint from python to visual C++ or
C# (which ever is easiest). But the more I find out about how M$
drivers are developed, the more I believe this is a lost cause!
Actually, how (or why) dose anyone deal with this? It sounds like a
horrible right of passage. And the M$ support for drivers (i.e. the
WDK) is no where near as friendly as that for Visual C# or even the less
supported Visual C++.
Really, is there anyone here that could help (i.e. point me in the right
direction). I have that feeling of possibly spending days trying to use
some tool when the answer is a download away.
