     tpctl -- touch panel calibration utility

     tpctl [-D dispdevname] [-d devname] [-f filename] [-hnuv]

     tpctl is a touch panel calibration utility.  tpctl calibrates a touch panel and saves and
     restores the calibration parameters into/from a parameter database file.

     Available command-line flags are:
     -D dispdevname   Specify display device name.
     -d devname       Specify touch panel device name.
     -f filename      Specify alternate parameter database file name.
     -h 	      Print brief description.
     -n 	      Do not change the parameter database file.
     -u 	      Force calibration.  Without this flag, tpctl won't do calibration if the
		      database file already contains parameters for the touch panel.
     -v 	      Verbose mode.

     You calibrate the touch panel the first time you run tpctl.  If you see a cross cursor on
     the screen, you should tap the center of the cursor to calibrate the touch panel, or you can
     abort the calibration with the 'ESC' key.	Five cursors will appear on the screen in turn.
     Once calibration is done, tpctl saves the calibration parameters into the database file and
     uses the saved parameters to calibrate the touch panel.

     You can run tpctl automatically with /etc/rc.d/tpctl.

     /etc/tpctl.dat  The default calibration parameter database file.  The -f flag may be used to
		     specify an alternate database file name.  tpctl will create an empty data-
		     base file if it doesn't exist.
     /dev/ttyE0      The default display device, which is used to display the cursor during cali-
		     bration.  The -D flag may be used to specify an alternate display device
		     name.  The display device must provide the 'hpcfb' interface as defined in
     /dev/wsmux0     The default touch panel device.  The -d flag may be used to specify an
		     alternate touch panel device name.


     tpctl isn't available on all ports because it requires a display device which provides the
     'hpcfb' interface.
