Hi, (didn't found a proper place to post this)

I was reading the AN82072 AppNote and found an error, the PDF document doesn't have the contact mail of the author, so i guess the unique way to report the typo is this forum.

So the error is in page 31 of the AppNote:

Code 3. Command to Compile Host Application:

$ gcc -o Linux_GenericHID_CLI.c Linux_GenericHID_CLI -I/usr/local/include/libusb-1.0 -L/usr/local/lib -lusb-1.0

 

After test this command in Ubuntu 16.04 and it doesn't work i google about gcc compilation and found the command that properly compile the file.

$ gcc Linux_GenericHID_CLI.c -o Linux_GenericHID_CLI -I/usr/local/include/libusb-1.0 -L/usr/local/lib -lusb-1.0

 

Hint: The -o flag is in a wrong place ;)

 

Hope it can be fixed soon.

At top of this page select "Design Support -> Create a Support Case" and describe again the typo. Cypress always  takes care of those suggestions / corrections.

I suggest to download the AN again, after which you will usually receive an automatic notification from the originator of the document with request for feedback
