libevdev - wrapper library for evdev input devices
libevdev is a wrapper library for evdev devices. it moves the common tasks when dealing with evdev devices into a library and provides a library interface to the callers, thus avoiding erroneous ioctls, etc.
The eventual goal is that libevdev wraps all ioctls available to evdev devices, thus making direct access unnecessary.
