       mouse_close - explicitly close a mouse


       #include <vgamouse.h>

       void mouse_close(void);


       Closes the mouse device file.  This should be called at the end of the program (if a mouse
       is used) because it tries to restore the original mouse state,  if  it  has  changed.   In
       particular  -  don't  call  mouse_init(), mouse_close(), mouse_init() this sequence is not
       going to work. Leave the mouse device open until the end of the program.

       It is very likely that both are at least  to  some  extent  are  due  to  Harm  Hanemaayer

       Occasionally  this might be wrong. I hereby asked to be excused by the original author and
