Description

This is a C# library dedicated for using with a www.canusb.com device
Full notes: See ReadMe.txt

Summary
The LAWICEL DLL is 'unmanaged code' and was not designed for use by C#/VB/Mono
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Managed_code
If you wish to call 'unmanaged code' from 'managed code', you need to use a 'C# wrapper' to access the DLL. This wrapper uses 'PInvoke' (like peek/poke) to 'martial' calls from managed to unmanaged code. It sounds complicated, and it is.
IT IS ALSO TOTALLY UNNECESSARY. Why not have the DLL as managed code?? Why not simply reference the library in your project and just call its functions?? This project does just that

Licence:
LGPLV3.: In summary, the only thing we ask is if you improve / bugfix / extend the library then feed these changes back into the project by emailing jon_newcomb or requesting sourceforge access. Applications you develop that use this library are not covered by this licence and can remain closed source and commercial

    This still uses unmanaged code. What I expected was that this library would open the USB device directly and communicate with it. but in fact it's just wrapping the native DLLs just like PInvoke. no use, as still alot of unmanaged (and buggy) code is involved
