This is a driver for the DextraPoint digitizing tablet, model no. DD-906 (could
be hard to get these days). All 3 buttons and the tilt function is supported.
The driver has been tested both with Reac tion and MUI programs. Even if you
don't have this tablet, you can use this package to develop drivers for other
tablets, as the source is included and the developer tool sercon (Serial
Console) also  with source. Programming experience is needed though.

Included is also 3 tablet icons (3 different colours) and a Tablets drawer icon
in Glowicons format.

INSTALLATION
Put the Tablets drawer in DEVS: (Workbench/Devs)

USAGE
Start the Tablet driver from Workbench or drop the icon in the WBStartup drawer.
The driver is a commodity, so it can be stopped with Exchange, or it can be
stopped by starting the driver a second time.

PROBLEMS - The driver runs ok from a shell (I use KingCON), but the shell hangs,
if I start vim (vi editor) afterwards. Running the driver in one shell and vim
in another works ok.
- Text can't be selected in the shell (KingCON). Selecting text in EditPad works
ok. I guess, this is because, the shell needs a RAWMOUSE event with LEFTBUTTON
down all the time while selecting the t ext.

ABOUT sercon This is a little tool to communicate with the serial port from a
console window. All you press on the keyboard is sent to the serial port, and
you'll see what's sent back in hex. 'y' is mapped to sen d 0x00 (binary zero)
and <return> will not be sent but just give a new line in the window. You may
want to change that.
For other tablets, you may have to change the baud rate and the flags.
