NAME
     spic -- Sony Programmable I/O Controller device driver

SYNOPSIS
     device spic

DEPRECATION NOTICE
     The spic driver will be removed in	FreeBSD	12.0.

DESCRIPTION
     The spic driver allows using moused(8) to drive the Sony Vaio Jogdial
     device found on several Sony Vaio models.	It works by mapping the	for-
     ward, backwards, up, and down inputs to ``l'', ``r'', ``u'', and ``d'',
     respectively.  From that a	program	reading	the Jogdial can	decide what to
     do.  Some actions might include scrolling,	mimicking mouse	buttons,
     launching applications, or	other useful things.

SEE ALSO
     moused(8)

HISTORY
     The spic device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.6.
