Quick question

Tom
I have made in the past a bunch of VB apps
to test hardware. They work and some call
functions written in C++ (dll calls).

I need to make a quick, dirty and cheap
console app to access a PCI device.
There is a program available to enumerate
PCI devices and give the address of the
registers assigned during the POST of the PC.
That info can be a manual input at program
execution.

What is the best way to program a pointer to
allow access to the desired memory space.
I know that VB does not support pointers
outright, but I recall there is a way to bypass
this issue. I forget how.

What is the best way to proceed?
Should I consider using C or C++
instead? I would prefer a VB user
interface because it is simpler to make.

The C++ guys have yet to make the
driver for hardware access. I can not
wait. The code is due for next week.

Tom.
