This is a program to check your joysticks. It's not the first program for
this purpose,  Joytest 2.9 looks nice and even checks four ports at the same
time, but I wanted something with arrows showing me the direction in which
the joystick is pushed.
I also found something on Aminet Set1A in dev/src, reading directly from the
CIA, Joystick using the OS, lowlevel.library.
Source and Makefile for SAS/C included, I hope I am using the functions
correctly.

Known Bugs:
-----------
- Does not work when started from the ZShell. If you find out why, please
  tell me and Martin. It does work when started from csh or standard shell
  (or Workbench?).
- Left Fire Button is detected approx. once a second without pressing it.

TODO:
-----
- About Requester.
- Workbench startup code.
- Nice icon, nicer images, nicer GUI.
- Check and display 2 (or even 4) Joyports at once.
