This is Debian/GNU Linux's prepackaged version of the General Purpose
Mouse Interface utility. The general purpose mouse daemon tries to be
a useful mouse server for applications running on the Linux console.

This package was put together by me, James Troup <james@nocrew.org>,
from the sources, which I obtained from

<URL:ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/system/mouse/gpm-1.14.tar.gz>

The changes were excessively numerous but minor :-

- adding support for the Debian package maintenance scheme, by adding
  various debian/* files.
- Makefile.in: compile shared library with -DREENTRANT and link with -lc.
- Makefile.in: support for compiling in another directory 
                    (for libc5 versions of the library)
- doc/manpager: use gawk explicitly since /usr/bin/awk is often mawk
  on Debian/GNU Linux systems and manpager doesn't work with mawk.
- doc/mktxt: ditto.
- doc/manpager: added a new rule to escape solitary backslashes.
- doc/doc.gpm: spelling & grammatical fixes.
- doc/Makefile: don't make any files 400.
- gpm-root.y (get_winsize): use /dev/tty0 not /dev/console.
- aclocal.m4: don't explicitly -I/usr/include/ncurses, as that will
  break the libc5-compat build and is unnecessary on Debian GNU/Linux
  systems.
- gpm.c (processConn): type of socket length changed (size_t -> socket_t).
- Makefile.in: compile the shared library with the pic versions of
  $EXTRAOBJS, Greg Stark <gsstark@mit.edu>. [#20008]
- gpm-root.y (f.debug): disable undocumented f.debug function because it uses a
  file in /tmp in a fashion which invites symlink abuse.
- mouse-test.1: new file.
- mouse-test.c (main): exclude devices with a minor number of 130 from
  the device probe to avoid causing spontaneous reboots on machines
  where watchdog is used.  Reported by Jim Studt <jim@federated.com>
  [#22602]
- gpm-root.y (main): s/vcs0/vcs/g.
- aclocal.m4: force configure to leave CFLAGS alone so debian/rules
  can compile debuggable but optimized binaries.

The following changes were thought of and done mostly by Fran´┐Żois
Gouget <fgouget@mygale.org>; though I didn't apply his patches as
they were for various reasons:

- gpn.c (cmdline): modified handling of -t command line argument, so it
  can be used by anyone regardless of whether or not a copy of gpm is
  already running.
- gpn.c (usage): update for new -t option "types".
- mice.c: improved descriptions of mouse types.
- mice.c (M_listMice): function used by -t help, reworked version of
  old M_listTypes.
- mice.c (M_listTypes): function used by -t types; lists only
  mnemonics.
