joystick_close(3) close a joystick


#include <vgajoystick.h>

void joystick_close(int joydev);


closes the joystick joydev which was opened with joystick_init(3).

joydev = -1 closes all currently open joystick devices. Note that any calibration data is lost if you close a joystick.


This function is 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.
