Is there any kind of joystick support for QNX

Post by John Nagle » Wed Nov 12, 2003 7:15 am

I need to interface some joystick-like device to QNX.
Is anything supported? Serial joysticks? Analog joysticks?
USB joysticks? MIDI joysticks? Anything? Thanks.

I don't know. I don't think so.

I had written a driver for QNX4 for a joystick. The problem is that
they are not a real time friendly device. You have to constantly poll
it to see when an RC circuit charges or discharges. I forget which.

Writing a driver for a serial joystick would be relatively
simple (i.e. a couple days work). See the Input DDK.

US Micro seems to have some nice industrial units.
