ms -- Sun workstation mouse driver
The ms driver provides an interface to the workstation console mouse.
This Mouse Systems three-button device produces five-byte blobs of the
b dx dy dx dy
where ``b'' is the button state, encoded as 0x80|(~buttons) -- there are
three buttons (4=left, 2=middle, 1=right) -- and ``dx'' and ``dy'' are X
and Y delta values, none of which are in the range [0x80..0x87].
The device special file /dev/mouse is used to get direct access to the
mouse input stream. The following ioctl's are supported (mostly just
enough to keep the Xorg(1) server going):
VUIDSFORMAT Set translation mode. The argument is of type int *, the
only value supported is VUID_FIRM_EVENT.
VUIDGFORMAT Get translation mode. The argument is of type int *.
VUID_FIRM_EVENT is always returned.
The mouse driver can be configured using the following kernel configura-
tion file options.
This option causes the kernel to communicate with the mouse
using the serial baud rate integer. It is useful for mice
which do not communicate at 1200 baud.
ms is hardwired to the built-in zs1 serial port.
