Rewriting MDF (Module Description File) parsers for VSCP this week and possibly next week. One for XML and one for JSON formatted MDF files. Format of the file is autodetected. Standard C++. Will make Python and node.js wrappers and c-lib available.
Every VSCP device holds a pointer to a file of this form. You can determine the functionality of the device from it, what it will send to you?, what you can configure?, get pictures of it, get the manul in a selected language, get firmware files, learn howto load firmware etc etc.
A powerful yet simple.
