/* Function prototypes */
 * Count the number of joysticks attached to the system
extern DECLSPEC int SDL_NumJoysticks(void);

 * Get the implementation dependent name of a joystick.
 * This can be called before any joysticks are opened.
 * If no name can be found, this function returns NULL.
extern DECLSPEC const char *SDL_JoystickName(int device_index);

 * Open a joystick for use - the index passed as an argument refers to
 * the N'th joystick on the system.  This index is the value which will
 * identify this joystick in future joystick events.
 * This function returns a joystick identifier, or NULL if an error occurred.
extern DECLSPEC SDL_Joystick *SDL_JoystickOpen(int device_index);

 * Returns 1 if the joystick has been opened, or 0 if it has not.
extern DECLSPEC int SDL_JoystickOpened(int device_index);

 * Get the device index of an opened joystick.
extern DECLSPEC int SDL_JoystickIndex(SDL_Joystick *joystick);

 * Get the number of general axis controls on a joystick
extern DECLSPEC int SDL_JoystickNumAxes(SDL_Joystick *joystick);

 * Get the number of trackballs on a joystick
 * Joystick trackballs have only relative motion events associated
 * with them and their state cannot be polled.
extern DECLSPEC int SDL_JoystickNumBalls(SDL_Joystick *joystick);

 * Get the number of POV hats on a joystick
extern DECLSPEC int SDL_JoystickNumHats(SDL_Joystick *joystick);

 * Get the number of buttons on a joystick
extern DECLSPEC int SDL_JoystickNumButtons(SDL_Joystick *joystick);

 * Update the current state of the open joysticks.
 * This is called automatically by the event loop if any joystick
 * events are enabled.
extern DECLSPEC void SDL_JoystickUpdate(void);

 * Enable/disable joystick event polling.
 * If joystick events are disabled, you must call SDL_JoystickUpdate()
 * yourself and check the state of the joystick when you want joystick
 * information.
 * The state can be one of SDL_QUERY, SDL_ENABLE or SDL_IGNORE.
extern DECLSPEC int SDL_JoystickEventState(int state);

 * Get the current state of an axis control on a joystick
 * The state is a value ranging from -32768 to 32767.
 * The axis indices start at index 0.
extern DECLSPEC Sint16 SDL_JoystickGetAxis(SDL_Joystick *joystick, int axis);

 * Get the current state of a POV hat on a joystick
 * The return value is one of the following positions:
#define SDL_HAT_CENTERED	0x00
#define SDL_HAT_UP		0x01
#define SDL_HAT_RIGHT		0x02
#define SDL_HAT_DOWN		0x04
#define SDL_HAT_LEFT		0x08
 * The hat indices start at index 0.
extern DECLSPEC Uint8 SDL_JoystickGetHat(SDL_Joystick *joystick, int hat);

 * Get the ball axis change since the last poll
 * This returns 0, or -1 if you passed it invalid parameters.
 * The ball indices start at index 0.
extern DECLSPEC int SDL_JoystickGetBall(SDL_Joystick *joystick, int ball, int *dx, int *dy);

 * Get the current state of a button on a joystick
 * The button indices start at index 0.
extern DECLSPEC Uint8 SDL_JoystickGetButton(SDL_Joystick *joystick, int button);

 * Close a joystick previously opened with SDL_JoystickOpen()
extern DECLSPEC void SDL_JoystickClose(SDL_Joystick *joystick);
