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 de-
     vice found	on several Sony	Vaio models.  It works by mapping the forward,
     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 ac-
     tions might include scrolling, mimicking mouse buttons, launching appli-
     cations, or other useful things.

SEE ALSO
     moused(8)

HISTORY
     The spic device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.6.
