jstest - joystick test program
jstest [--normal] [--old] [--event] [--nonblock] [--select] <device-name>
jstest can be used to test all the features of the Linux joystick API, including non- blocking and select(2) access, as well as version 0.x compatibility mode. It is also intended to serve as an example implementation for those who wish to learn how to write their own joystick using applications.
--normal One-line mode showing immediate status. --old Same as --normal, using 0.x interface. --event Prints events as they come in. --nonblock Same as --event, in nonblocking mode. --select Same as --event, using select(2) call.
jstest was written by Vojtech Pavlik. This manual page was written by Stephen Kitt <email@example.com>, for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
