    Barcode scanner

    Hi guys, I'm trying to write a program to accept results from a micro kiosk (barcode scanner thingie), but it doesnt just act like a keyboard, I need to manage it, like enable the scanner, detect its status, retrieve input... the documentation doesnt help a bit since I need to do it in python, the demo program it provides is written in asp vbscript. Is there any python module that helps? Thanks in advance.
    What can change the nature of a man?

    I haven't looked, but I think it's unlikely because you'd need someone else with the same scanner wanting to control it from Python and releasing their code.

    Your best approach by far, since you have example code, would be to convert the VBScript. How much of it is there?
