Hi There

I have a question about the linux library.
I found an tutotial at instructables. They refer to ... get.tar.gz

Is this a different library than the libphidget22
and if so, are there performance differences using the one or the other?

Thanks :)

Yes, this is a different library. The one you linked is Phidget21, which is an older version. You can read about the differences between the two here.

The main difference is that newer devices like the VINT Hub require Phidget22, which has a different way of breaking up the software objects (one object per channel instead of one per device).

You can have both versions installed at the same time, but your program will only need to use one.
