Hi everyone,
I have registered a rotary encoder in /dev/input/event0 and i try to test it with evtest.
This is the output of the test:
Input driver version is 1.0.1
Input device ID: bus 0x19 vendor 0x0 product 0x0 version 0x0
Input device name: "rotary.4"
Supported events:
Event type 0 (EV_SYN)
Event type 2 (EV_REL)
Event code 0 (REL_X)
Properties:
Testing ... (interrupt to exit)

I would like to create an event that allows me to read the value 1 or -1 generated by the movement of the encoder.
Basically I have to create a custom signal with the parameters that I need... how can I do it?

thank you
