What is it?
TouchBench is an application that converts touchscreen events produced by
touch.device into mouse events.
Two emulation modes are supported:
1) "MOUSE" mode is suitable for workbench operations.It emulates all the
functionalities of a mouse, according to the following rules:
- Press & Release within 100 msec -> left-mouse button click
- Press & Move                    -> mouse drag with left-mouse button pressed
- Press & Hold for more then 1sec -> right-mouse button press
2) "RAW" mode is suitable for touch-panels operations. It translates the touch
events according to the following rules:
- press   -> left-mouse button press
- release -> left-mouse button release

All the applications developed for the amiga until now, obviously only involve
the use of the mouse, since there was no API that managed touch events, like the
one provided by touch.device.
TouchBench allows all pre-existing applications that do not use touch.device to
be used with a touchscreen.
I developed this application to be able to use point and click games or
touch-friendly applications like MihPhoto with my touchscreen, and as first test
application for touch.device.

Copy the folder wherever you like.

TouchBench can currently be configured through tooltypes.
The following tooltypes are available:
- MODE: define the emulation mode. The following values are available:
  - "MOUSE" is the default mode, suitable for applications requiring standard
mouse operations.
  - "RAW" - suitable for touch-panel applications and point-and-click games.
- SENSITIVITY: it tunes the sensitivity of recognizing a drag action (default
value is 40 pixels). Sensitivity is valid only in MOUSE mode.
- ANTIBOUNCE: if specified with RAW mode, it ignores the release events shorter
than the specified value in msecs.

To start touchbench:
   - double-click on the touchbench icon will run the application in background.
To stop touchbench you can:
   - type 'touchbench BREAK' from CLI
   - send a CTRL_C signal to the touchbench process
Note: TouchBench is an amigaos application, so you can use "exchanger" to
control the running state.

Known problems & limitations
- Missing GUI.
- It currently supports no more than 16 touch devices at a time.
