XSetPointerMapping(3)		XLIB FUNCTIONS		 XSetPointerMapping(3)

       XSetPointerMapping, XGetPointerMapping -	manipulate pointer settings

       int XSetPointerMapping(Display *display,	unsigned char map[], int

       int XGetPointerMapping(Display *display,	unsigned char map_return[],
	      int nmap);

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       map	 Specifies the mapping list.

		 Returns the mapping list.

       nmap	 Specifies the number of items in the mapping list.

       The XSetPointerMapping function sets the	mapping	of the pointer.	 If it
       succeeds, the X server generates	a MappingNotify	event, and XSetPoint-
       erMapping returns MappingSuccess.  Element map[i] defines the logical
       button number for the physical button i+1.  The length of the list must
       be the same as XGetPointerMapping would return, or a BadValue error re-
       sults.  A zero element disables a button, and elements are not re-
       stricted	in value by the	number of physical buttons.  However, no two
       elements	can have the same nonzero value, or a BadValue error results.
       If any of the buttons to	be altered are logically in the	down state,
       XSetPointerMapping returns MappingBusy, and the mapping is not changed.

       XSetPointerMapping can generate a BadValue error.

       The XGetPointerMapping function returns the current mapping of the
       pointer.	 Pointer buttons are numbered starting from one.  XGetPoint-
       erMapping returns the number of physical	buttons	actually on the
       pointer.	 The nominal mapping for a pointer is map[i]=i+1.  The nmap
       argument	specifies the length of	the array where	the pointer mapping is
       returned, and only the first nmap elements are returned in map_return.

       BadValue	 Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted
		 by the	request.  Unless a specific range is specified for an
		 argument, the full range defined by the argument's type is
		 accepted.  Any	argument defined as a set of alternatives can
		 generate this error.
