The rfid library is a set of C functions to dialog with RFID devices. A RFID transponder is a wireless memory area made of a chip and an antenna. A RFID reader creates a magnetic field that is used as a power source by RFID transponders and as a carrier for communication. A program can use the rfid library to be notified when a RFID transponder enters or leaves the range of a RFID reader. When a RFID transponder is in range, data can be read from its memory or written into it.
The library supports all ISO-15693-3 conformant RFID transponders, is available under the GPL license at the following location: http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/rfid/.
