I was fooling around with using a mouse in C. I wanted a nice simple
routine that could be easily adapted to already existing programs.
Basically, I only wanted to use the mouse in place of the keyboard
cursor keys and the enter key. Text screen menu selection and
the like.
Examples of mouse routines I saw usually involved polling
the mouse repeatedly in tight loops. I read documentation about the
mouse driver event handler extension, and that seemed to be the way to
go. I also thought about tapping into the RTC INT. Before sitting down
at the keyboard I checked the boards to see if someone else had already
written a similar type of program. Well, I could not find a C event
handler, but I did find a nice TSR by Paul Noeldner called mouser.008.
This program stuffs the keyboard from mouse movements. Also, its a PD
program (thanks Paul!). It seemed to work just fine. Well, I didn't
want a TSR, but the basic procedure was already there. TurboC makes it
pretty easy to interface a TASM program and in an evening I had what I
wanted. In the event that others are interested, I present my TC 2.0
adaptation. Naturally, use it, improve it etc.., as much as you like.
