PC/SC sample in different languages

The PC/SC API also called WinSCard can be used from a large variety of languages. I will start a serie of blogs to present the same program (functionnally) but using different languages.


If you know a wrapper for a language not listed above please contact me.


The program shall do:
  1. connect to the first found smart card reader
  2. send APDU: 00 A4 04 00 0A A0 00 00 00 62 03 01 0C 06 01
  3. display result
  4. send APDU: 00 00 00 00
  5. display result
The first APDU is a SELECT command to select a test applet. The second command is the only command known by the applet.

Smart card Applet

The applet only knows one command and returns Hello world! (yes, it is a test applet). It was described in a French magazine GNU/Linux Magazine HS n°39.
