Abstract

Device drivers for Mac OS X are written using a framework known as the I/O Kit. The I/O Kit consists of header files and libraries that provide the services required by drivers, as well as header files and libraries that are used by user space code to locate a kernel driver and interact with it. There are two main parts of the I/O Kit:
  • Kernel.framework

  • IOKit.framework
