SYNOPSIS

joytest number

DESCRIPTION

This demo program tries to open the joystick with the given number and calibrates it. The user is prompted to press <Return> after which any state change of the joystick is reported until the program is killed.

This demo is part of svgalib and can be found in the demos/ subdirectory of the original svgalib distribution. However, it is not installed in the system by default, s.t. it is unclear where you can find it if your svgalib was installed by some linux distribution. Even then, when you have the demo on your system, you probably won’t have the sources s.t. it is only of limited use for you.

In case of any such problem, simply get an svgalib distribution from the net. You even don’t need to install it. Just make in the demos/ subdirecty. As of this writing, svgalib-1.3.0.tar.gz is the latest version and can be retrieved by ftp from sunsite.unc.edu at /pub/Linux/libs/graphics and tsx-11.mit.edu at /pub/linux/sources/libs which will most probably be mirrored by a site close to you.

CAVEATS

The functions used by this demo are only available in ELF versions of svgalib. Due to backwards compatibility issues it cannot be used with shared a.out libs.
