Libchipcard is a library for generic access to chipcard readers. It contains a complete ressource manager and uses the hardware drivers provided by manufacturers of card readers. The number of readers to be used in parallel is unbound.

Libchipcard has some advantages over existing card reader ressource managers:
* autodetection of readers at multiple buses
* readers are only allocated upon request by a client (while no client needs access to a given reader this reader is not accessed by Libchipcard3)
* it provides a fake CTAPI which can be used by any CTAPI-aware program to use Libchipcard3 via CTAPI

Libchipcard3 autodetects and automatically configures readers at the following buses:
* raw USB
* USB serial

Libchipcard3 has been tested by myself with the following readers:
* Kobil Kaan Advanced USB (works)
* Towitoko Chipdrive Micro (serial, works)
* old Reiner SCT Cyberjack (0x100, works)
* new Reiner SCT Cyberjack (0x300, works)
* Reiner SCT Cyberjack ECom (works)
* Omnikey CardMan 3621 (USB, works)
* Omnikey CardMan 4000 (PCMCIA, works)
* Cherry G80-1501 (mode 2, works)
* Cherry G80-1502 (mode 2, works)
* SCM SCR 3310 (works)
* SCM SPR 532 (works with original driver, see 9.4)
