i found minimal information at wikipedia:
the project is mainly about hacking / reusing the old stuff for some project that might come (i'm just getting into the whole electronics world). i thought if i could monitor the talk on the adb-data line i could make some sense out of it .. hence my question.
what is "software serial"?
i think i missed to say there's an arduino involved which sits in between the mouse and my powerbook. so, mouse is connected with it's single data-line to rx/tx on the arduino (dpin 0,1) and arduino is being listened to via serial monitor.
wikipedia states that adb-communication sends a command to the address the device (mouse) is connected to and then listens to the response ...
how can i both talk to the mouse and send the responses to the monitor without generating an echo?
i found the ps/2 mouse example and it was a good starter to get an old ps/2 keyboard connected and talking to processing ... but having a mac history i have a lot more mac periphericals than pc ones.
thanks for your answers!
