mouse_getx, mouse_gety, mouse_getbutton - query the mouse state
These three routines do the obvious, namely returning current mouse pointer
position and button state. mouse_getbutton()
returns an integer which

A 1 on any of these bits means the button has been pressed, a 0 means it hasn't.
Please note that you need to call mouse_update
(3) for the mouse state actually to change.
For 3d pointer devices, there is actually another interface. See
