gpm: General Purpose Mouse Daemon1

The gpm (general purpose mouse) daemon tries to be a useful mouse server for applications running on the Linux console. Its roots are in the "selection" package, by Andrew Haylett, and the original code comes from selection itself. This package is intended as a replacement for "selection", to provide additional facilities. From 0.18 onward gpm supports xterm as well, so you can run mouse-sensitive applications under X, and you can easily write curses applications which support the mouse on both the Linux console and xterm. The xterm code is portable to any U*x flavour (look at sample/README).
