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.
