       joytest - test the svgalib joystick package in text mode

       joytest number

       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 at
       /pub/Linux/libs/graphics and at /pub/linux/sources/libs
       which will most probably be mirrored by a site close to you.

       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.

       The svgalib joystick handler was mostly done by Daniel Engstr\"om
       <[email protected]>.  Multiple joystick, VC switching support
       and code to glue it into svgalib by Michael Weller <[email protected]>. Part of the code is based on code from C. Smith and
       Vojtech Pavlik.
