SPIC(4)                  BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                  SPIC(4)

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

SYNOPSIS
     device spic

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.

HISTORY
     The spic device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.6.
