       mouse_close - explicitly close a mouse


       #include <vgamouse.h>

       void mouse_close(void);


       Closes  the mouse device file.  This should be called at the end of the
       program (if a mouse is used) because it tries to restore  the  original
       mouse   state,   if  it  has  changed.   In  particular  -  don’t  call
       mouse_init(), mouse_close(), mouse_init() this sequence is not going to
       work. Leave the mouse device open until the end of the program.
