Not sure if this will help, but Linux uses a daemon to allow you copy and paste from/to the command line, called "gpm". You may want to check that utility and see if that is any good start for you?

i dont know anything about MIPS, but i think what you said means you can try reading the mouse device file. it used to be /dev/mouse a long time ago, i dont know what it is nowadays, because they've changed things a lot, eg. if you have a USB mouse you may have to read the USB port's device file or something, your distro may not be polite enough to make a "/dev/mouse" link to the USB device file when you plug in the mouse. theres something called HID compliance or whatever as well i think.
