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_setposition(3), and  mouse_getx(3), except that they work in all
       six dimensions, x, y, z, and rotations about those axes.

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

       mouse_setposition_6d() and mouse_setrange_6d() take an additional
       argument 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 shorthand 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
       coordinates will always return zero (or whatever value you set them
       to).
