       vga_setmousesupport - enable mouse support


       #include <vga.h>

       void vga_setmousesupport(int stat);


       Set  mouse  support;  0 disables (default), 1 enabled. If enabled, the mouse is set up for
       screen resolution after a mode set and you can use the various mouse_ functions.  You  can
       also  use  mouse_init(3)  the  mouse in more flexibility. However, usually this is not the
       deal of the application.  The mouse is configured in  /etc/vga/libvga.config  and  usually
       the application will just want to use that.

       The mousetest(6), eventtest(6), and spin(6) demos make use of the mouse functions.

       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
