Yes, a typo. I shouldn't write mails at that time :)

I thought about cDevice as input devices only. After reading PLUGINS.html and 
Udo's mail I understand that a cDevice also represents output devices (or both 
at the same time when using FF cards).

Although I'm doing software development for about 10 years I must admin that I 
very rarely came in contact with C++ code. I can read and write it, but it 
takes longer for me to get an overview as, let's say, in Java code. For 
example I had never before to deal with multiple inheritance (besides of 
Interfaces). But I'm doing my best :-)

Thanks for the hint, I assumed that there must be further documentation, but 
somehow I missed this file.
