    I'm working on an assignment criteria for event driven programming that requires me to make a written description to explain how an operating system can be viewed as event driven.

    As one of the examples I thought I'd describe the underlying process of how XP detects a USB flash drive and makes it available/usable. So far I've got the following worked out.

    #1: getting all of the information about that device
    #2: its capacity
    #3: free space
    #4: used space
    #5: partition format
    #6: manufacturer
    #7: USB (Universal Serial Bus) version (1.1 or 2.0)
    #8: check for required drivers
    #9: assign it a drive letter
    #10: check for auto run files (if enabled)


    This is just one of the examples I am going to give and have many other points to describe so aren't going to struggle. I just want to give some actual details of at least one process that clearly spells out an event driven process rather than just mention the end results for the user (such as the event driven GUI aspects).


    Thanks.
