NAME

       mouse_getx, mouse_gety, mouse_getbutton - query the mouse state

SYNOPSIS

       #include <vgamouse.h>

       int mouse_getx(void);
       int mouse_gety(void);
       int mouse_getbutton(void);

DESCRIPTION

       These  three  routines  do  the obvious, namely returning current mouse
       pointer  position  and  button  state.   mouse_getbutton()  returns  an
       integer    which    can   be   bitwise   &’d   with   MOUSE_LEFTBUTTON,
       MOUSE_MIDDLEBUTTON,       MOUSE_RIGHTBUTTON,        MOUSE_FOURTHBUTTON,
       MOUSE_FIFTHBUTTON, MOUSE_SIXTHBUTTON, or MOUSE_RESETBUTTON.

       A  1  on any of these bits means the button has been pressed, a 0 means
       it hasn’t.

       Please   note   that   you   need   to    call    mouse_update(3)    or
       mouse_waitforupdate(3) for the mouse state actually to change.

       For  3d  pointer  devices,  there  is  actually  another interface. See
       mouse_getposition_6d(3).
