    This will be implementation specific. You could always just, oh, I donno, use a search engine?

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    Thumbs up

    Im not sure if a header file exists for mouse functions in DOS, but I declare and define my own headers. I use the BIOS interrupt 0x33 (the mouse interrupt) and the services under it to Initialize Mouse, move the cursor, Change the Shapes, Show or hide cursor, getting the button status etc. Mail me if u need more info and I would post it here.
    Help everyone you can
