Extensible Driver Interface

EDI is a driver interface intended to be source code portable and fairly simple in implementation, so that hobby small hobby OSs may share driver code base.

Introduction

EDI was writen by Eli Gottlieb in 2006 after he realised that UDI was inappropriate for the vast variety of operating system designs that exist in the hobby OSDev world. It is designed to require very little from the system providing the implementation, while still allowing for simple extension. This is done by using an object oriented model accessed using C functions, allowing drivers and operating systems in almost all languages to use it.
