mouse_waitforupdate(3) wait for an mouse update


#include <vgamouse.h>

void mouse_waitforupdate(void);


This reads in mouse events from the mouse buffer and updates the internal svgalib variables which store the current mouse position and button states. If there are no events the function does not return until one occurs.


This manual page was edited by Michael Weller <[email protected]>. The exact source of the referenced function as well as of the original documentation is unknown.

Occasionally this might be wrong. I hereby asked to be excused by the original author and will happily accept any additions or corrections to this first version of the svgalib manual.
