Does anybody know how to list the Device Numbers without opening the

I need to connect a mouse with varying hardware.
However, "open by device type" does not work.
"Open by vendor / product ID" does not seem to work either.
Maybe it's because only the receiver of my wireless mouse shows up or it
simply doesn't work anyway.

Connecting with [open 9( works fine but if the number has changed it won't
open automatically anymore.
When sending [print( to [hid] I can see the device numbers but only in the
pd window. It does not appear on any of the two outlets.

Is there a shell command that will give me the listing?
I searched the internet but didn't find anything so far.
