reading & interpreting data from /dev/gpmdata


I found out that when a client connected to the Gpm server turns it's display into a graphic mode, the Gpm will stop sending events to it, and instead, it will put the data into /dev/gpmdata. But i have no idea of how to interpret that data. Does anybody know how to transform the data from /dev/gpmdata into mouse statistics like the x and y coordinates and buttons status?

The format in /dev/gpmdata depends on the repeating protocol defined in the gpm configuration.
