joytest(3)             Svgalib User Manual             joytest(3)

NAME
       joytest - test the svgalib joystick package in text mode

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 joy-
       stick 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 distri-
       bution  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  mir-
       rored 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.
