I wanted to do this with _Watson_, but couldn't get to first base with
the company. I spoke with them several times, and the conversations went
Me: will this work with UNIX?
Them: it works will all DOS applications
Me: UNIX isn't a DOS application.
Them: You can use our interface.
Me: Can I get info to write a device driver?
Them: We alreqady supply a device driver
Me: Can I get information on what ports and
interrupts it uses?
Them: We have a developer's kit for $xxx
Me: Does it have information about the ports?
Them: It tells how to use our device driver
Me: Thank you. (hang up phone) *^%&^% twit!
I went thru this TWICE and decided they couldn't be bothered. Too bad,
the product is SERIOUSLY neat. Someone told me it does NOT run under
VP/ix, but I never spent the $200 to try it.
