mouse_close(3) Svgalib User Manual mouse_close(3)

mouse_close - explicitly close a mouse

#include <vgamouse.h>
void mouse_close(void);

Closes the mouse device file. This should be called at the end of the program (if a mouse is used) because it tries to restore the original mouse state, if it has changed. In particular - don't call mouse_init(), mouse_close(), mouse_init() this sequence is not going to work. Leave the mouse device open until the end of the program.

This manual page was edited by Michael Weller <>. The exact source of the referenced function as well as of the original documentation is unknown.
It is very likely that both are at least to some extent are due to Harm Hanemaayer <>.
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.
