In computing, a device driver is a computer program that operates or controls a particular type of device that is attached to a computer.

A driver typically communicates with the device through the computer bus or communications subsystem to which the hardware connects.

When a calling program invokes a routine in the driver, the driver issues commands to the device. Once the device sends data back to the driver, the driver may invoke routines in the original calling program.

Drivers applications
