I'm fairly new to ubuntu and I've started to search around everywhere and check everything!
Recently I saw these files at
/dev/input/eventX, js0, mice, mouseX. By printing the output using "cat" I realized they are somehow responsible for mouse and keyboard input but the output had an strange character encoding (even for the keyboard).
My questions are,
- what are these files and how can I interpret the data of these files?
- Are there any other places that I can access the input/output of my Ubuntu machine?
- And are there any ebooks, manual or something similar that I can check the duty and structure of ubuntu system files? (i.e. to find the answer of such question)
To make the data of the file more readable, I used hexdump:
sudo cat /dev/input/by-id/<nameofthemouse> | hexdump -C
