NAME

       SDL_JoystickGetAxis - Get the current state of an axis

SYNOPSIS

       #include "SDL.h"

       Sint16 SDL_JoystickGetAxis(SDL_Joystick *joystick, int axis);

DESCRIPTION

       SDL_JoystickGetAxis returns the current state of the given axis on the given joystick.

       On  most  modern  joysticks  the X axis is usually represented by axis 0 and the Y axis by
       axis 1. The value returned by SDL_JoystickGetAxis is a signed integer  (-32768  to  32768)
       representing  the  current  position  of  the  axis,  it maybe necessary to impose certain
       tolerances on these values to account for jitter. It is worth noting that  some  joysticks
       use axes 2 and 3 for extra buttons.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns a 16-bit signed integer representing the current position of the axis.

EXAMPLES

       Sint16 x_move, y_move;
       SDL_Joystick *joy1;
       .
       .
       x_move=SDL_JoystickGetAxis(joy1, 0);
       y_move=SDL_JoystickGetAxis(joy1, 1);
