The microcontroller uses usb, and the dll has many nice functions that I
would not want to have to write again.
Anyone has an example of code calling a function in another dll in

What so special about the communication protocol of the microcontroler?
Does it work with a serial port using human readable commands? Because
might not need the DLL, and you could build a cross-platform patch.

I think you'd have to program an object in C that uses the DLL.
As usual, I recommend flext.
