NAME
ptcd -- support for the Protech PS3100 cash drawer port
SYNOPSIS
ptcd* at isa? port 0x48d gpio* at ptcd?
DESCRIPTION
The ptcd driver controls the cash drawer port of the Protech PS3100 point of sale terminal using the GPIO subsystem. ptcd provides a GPIO device with two pins: pin 0 is used to control the cash drawer while pin 1 can be used to read the current state of the sense input pin. A logical 0 means the cash drawer is closed, a logical 1 means the cash drawer is open. To open the cash drawer, set pin 0 to logical 1 for a short period of time (e.g. < 1 sec) and then reset the pin to logical 0.

The ptcd driver was written by Marc Balmer <marc@msys.ch>.
CAVEATS
As it is not possible to detect the hardware at runtime, this driver, when enabled, will always attach. Only enable it in your kernel configu- ration if you have the proper hardware. NetBSD 9.99 December 17, 2012 NetBSD 9.99
