NAME

       mouse_getposition_6d, mouse_setposition_6d, mouse_setrange_6d - provide an interface to 3d
       mice

SYNOPSIS

       #include <vgamouse.h>

       void mouse_getposition_6d(int *x, int *y, int *z, int *rx , int *ry, int *rz);
       void mouse_setposition_6d(int x, int y, int z, int rx , int ry, int rz, int dim_mask);
       void mouse_setrange_6d(int x1, int x2, int y1, int y2, int z1 , int z2, int rx1, int  rx2,
       int ry1, int ry2 , int rz1, int rz2, int dim_mask);

DESCRIPTION

       These    routines   provide   the   same   function   as   mouse_getx(3),   mouse_gety(3),
       mouse_setxrange(3), mouse_setyrange(3), mouse_setposition(3),  and  mouse_getx(3),  except
       that they work in all six dimensions, x, y, z, and rotations about those axes.

       For  mouse_getposition_6d(), NULL pointers may be passed for any coordinate you don't care
       to know about.  Those dimensions will be ignored.

       mouse_setposition_6d()  and  mouse_setrange_6d()  take  an  additional   argument   called
       dim_mask,  which  should  be  an  logical  or  of  the  following: MOUSE_XDIM, MOUSE_YDIM,
       MOUSE_ZDIM, MOUSE_RXDIM, MOUSE_RYDIM, or MOUSE_RZDIM.  MOUSE_2DIM, MOUSE_3DIM,  MOUSE_6DIM
       can be used as shorthand for the XY, XYZ, or XYZRxRyRz dimensions.  The position or ranges
       will only be set if that dimension is included in dim_mask.

       The 6d mouse routines can be used safely with any mouse type, including standard 2D mice.

       When used with mice that support fewer than six axes, the other  coordinates  will  always
       return zero (or whatever value you set them to).
