mouse_getposition_6d(3)	      Svgalib User Manual      mouse_getposition_6d(3)

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_setposi-
       tion(3),	 and  mouse_getx(3),  except  that they	work in	all six	dimen-
       sions, x, y, z, and rotations about those axes.

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

       mouse_setposition_6d() and mouse_setrange_6d() take an additional argu-
       ment 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	short-
       hand  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 coordi-
       nates will always return	zero (or whatever value	you set	them to).
