If you use it under DOS , you should learn about the Int 33h stuff . I have the docs written so I cannot send them , but I am sure you will find relative docs in the net .

If it is a windows program ,the Win Api messages like WM_MOUSEMOVE etc will help

void mouse_init ()
{
  asm
  {  
     mov ax, 20  /* enable mouse driver */
     int 33h
         
     mov ax,1  /* show mouse */
     int 33h
 
  }  /* does Turbo c++ require colon?  ; */

}

For more action and fun,
You can go and download
 www.simtel.netftp://ftp.simtel.net/pub/simtelnet/msdos/mouse/mou105.zip.
This is source code for DOS mouse routines.
Have fun!!

oops, semi-colon, I mean. After the asm { } brackets.
:)
The source code mou105.zip is Turbo C compatible, so, you'll have no problems with
syntax.  :)
have fun!
