This is a Turbo Pascal unit for managing a MicroSoft mouse.
mouse.pas --- source code for the mouse unit
mouse.doc --- description of the various parts of the unit
square.pas --- example source using the mouse unit
readthis.1st --- this here
Rather than to provide a tutorial on programming with a mouse, it is
assumed you have a good idea of the various operations made possible
by the mouse driver software.
Most of the code contained in the mouse unit is simple calls to
interrupt 33h. There is additional code defining a pointing hand
cursor and to define areas of the screen as numbers.
I wrote this unit quickly in order to make use of my mouse, and know
that the documentation is very minimal and there are of course bugs.
I haven't found any other mouse units sources on ftp sites so this
should at least start some people out.
I would suggest that the best way to learn how to
use this is to study the read_config procedure within the example

If you use this, of learn anything from it, please send me a 5 dollar bill
to ease your guilty concious. If you're poor, send me some source code!
Id also like to find a few computer programming penpals.
