;;; Commentary:

;; This package provides access to mouse event as reported by the
;; gpm-Linux package.  It uses the program "mev" to get mouse events.
;; It tries to reproduce the functionality offered by Emacs under X.
;; The "gpm" server runs under Linux, so this package is rather
;; Linux-dependent.

;; Modified by Nick Roberts for Emacs 22.  In particular, the mode-line is
;; now position sensitive.

;; due to a horrible kludge in Emacs' keymap handler
;; (read_key_sequence) mouse clicks on funny parts of windows generate
;; TWO events, the first being a dummy of the sort '(mode-line).
;; That's why Per Abrahamsen's code in xt-mouse.el doesn't work for
;; the modeline, for instance.

;; now get this:  the Emacs C code that generates these fake events
;; depends on certain things done by the very lowest level input
;; handlers; namely the symbols for the events (for instance
;; 'C-S-double-mouse-2) must have an 'event-kind property, set to
;; 'mouse-click.  Since events from unread-command-events do not pass
;; through the low level handlers, they don't get this property unless
;; I set it myself.  I imagine this has caused innumerable attempts by
;; hackers to do things similar to t-mouse to lose.

;; The next page of code is devoted to fixing this ugly problem.
