Raspberry Pi Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users and developers of hardware and software for Raspberry Pi. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Ive found a lot of infomation on how to enable the SPI device on my raspberry pi, and a bit on how to use certain libraries for python, but im missing something on how to actually use the SPI driver now that my device is installed.

Can this only be done with compiled C ? Can i write to /dev/spidev0.0 directly from the terminal? Can i open it as a socket / port?

any information or pointing in the right direction would be greatly appreciated
