Full Version: Chkhinge - Any Idea What This Program Does
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Zaurus - Everything Development > Qt/Qtopia
There is a executable called 'chkhinge' sitting in /home/QtPalmtop/bin

Is there any idea what this program does and where it is called from ?
Can this in any way be used to test for wether the clamshell hinge is turned or not (in portrait or landscape) ?
Look in /home/QtPlamtop/ for an example of how to use it or try

$ chkhinge
$ echo $?

$? is the bash for the exit status of the last program. In chkhinge's case 0 is landscape and 2 portrait.
...and 3 for closed.

Couldn't resist the urge to test :
if you press the little button closest to the keyboard which is pressed when the shell is closed while running this in a console (you can't type anything on the keyboard when this button is pressed) :
"while true; do clear; chkhinge; echo $?; sleep 1; done" you'll get "1" : a bit is set when a button is pressed, the closest is the less significant bit, the other is the most significant.
