new version of pcsc-tools: 1.4.20

I just released a (two in fact) new version of pcsc-tools. The major change is the move of the personal litst of ATR used by ATR_analysis from ~ to ~/.cache/.

If you do not know what pcsc-tools is, it contains 4 tools:
  • pcsc_scan(1) regularly scans every PC/SC reader connected to the host if a card is inserted or removed a "line" is printed.
  • ATR_analysis(1) is a Perl script used to parse the smart card ATR. This script is called (by default) by pcsc_scan.
  • scriptor(1) is a Perl script to send commands to a smart card using a batch file or stdin.
  • gscriptor(1) the same idea as but with a Perl-Gtk2 GUI.

An equivalent of ATR_analysis is available online

1.4.20 - 16 June 2012, Ludovic ROUSSEAU
  • Makefile: Add arguments to CFLAGS instead of overwritting them
  • 3 new ATRs

1.4.19 - 13 June 2012, Ludovic ROUSSEAU
  • ATR_analysis: use XDG_CACHE_HOME env variable
    The smartcard_list.txt file is now searched in ~/.cache/ by default
