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 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.
