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).
