Am hoping someone might take an interest in porting this Perl module to

The LabJack is a USB data acquisition device that only costs about $112 and
is very handy. If anyone who knows how to make the port should take an interest
I would be happy to buy them a LabJack (theirs to keep) for making the effort.

The CPAN package name is...


...and the device itself has its own website at...

The Perl module installs okay on WinXP and it is supposed to also support

The output from CPAN on NetBSD 2.0.2 is as follows.... Going to build C/CD/CDRAKE/Device-LabJack-0.02.tar.gz

Checking if your kit is complete...
