testlibraw attaches to the Linux IEEE 1394 subsystem through libraw1394 and tries to read data from all connected nodes. It therefore acts as a check that:
- libraw1394 is installed correctly
- the IEEE 1394 subsystem is loaded in the kernel and of a supported version
- libraw1394 and kernel side raw1394 can communicate
- connected nodes can be reached and do respond.
The read transactions are of a form that all powered up nodes conforming to the IEEE 1394 standard have to be able to respond to.
The source of this program also acts as a demonstration of libraw1394 programming, including initialization, transactions and the event loop.
