     I second that! The finest routines for the mouse I've seen! May I be so
bold to suggest a possible bug. I used them on a computer which didn't have a
mouse driver installed and I got some fatal errors. The first line in the
initialization routine should be added to read xor bx, bx. Without that, the
routine fails to report that a mouse driver doesn't exist. At least it did on
this PC. Adding that line solved the problem.
     The next thing I've got to figure out is if I can use your routines in a
DesqView aware program or if I need to spend bunches of dollars on DesqView's
