-- Fetch all input devices currently connected to the system
local inputDevices = system.getInputDevices()

-- Traverse all input devices
for deviceIndex = 1,#inputDevices do
    -- Fetch the input device's axes
    local inputAxes = inputDevices[deviceIndex]:getAxes()

    -- Print all axis minimum property values to the log
    for axisIndex = 1,#inputAxes do
        local inputAxis = inputAxes[axisIndex]
        print( inputAxis.descriptor .. ": Min value = " .. tostring(inputAxis.minValue) )
