What is the best way of parsing HID data?
I want to use the "hi" object and get data from moving my SpaceNavigator HID device.
I have tried this with the hi-object help patch and I get a lot of data when moving the 3D joystick, but how do I easily parse this and map it in a convenient way?
What I would like is something like a multislider object where each slider represent one data stream for one joystick axis such as up, down, turn and so on from my 3D joystick.
I also get some very large values as output from the hi-object. Values such as: 4294959498 (10 digits).
What is the resolution of an axis on a HID device?
How do I find information about the maximum and minimum values?
I guess I need some knowledge of this to scale the sliders appropriately?
