The Metrologic scanner is working perfectly in bi-directional serial
mode. But when I configure it as USB HID Keyboard mode as shown in the
link and keyboard layout as US-English, I am not getting any data from
Scanner. I have opened a terminal and scanned multiple barcodes but no
output on screen.

Can you help me in getting data from Scanner in USB HID Keyboard
Emulation mode as this would reduce the burden of using an extra
driver and the application program can read directly from the
emulation keyboard instead of listening to serial device.
