       Events are of type gii_event. It is an union of all of  the  structures
       for each specific type of event.


       All  of  the  event structures contains housekeeping information at the
       beginning, as defined by COMMON_DATA.

       Thus, by analyzing the contents of any.type, you can determine what the
       given  event  is,  and  select  the appropriate member of the gii_event
       union to access to get at the event

       The common fields found in any event structure are:

       size   Specifies the size of the given event (in bytes).

       type   An enumeration of the possible types of LibGII events (see  next

       error  Mainly  there to round things up to a 32-bit boundary, but could
              be used to signal an error in a send-reply sequence.

       origin A device handle: it distinguishes one input device from another.
              Other than that there’s no real meaning to the number.

       target Also  a  device handle, but for distinguishes input devices when
              sending events to an input device via giiEventSend(3).

       time   Indicates when the event in question  has  been  generated.  See
              gettimeofday(2) for more info on the timeval structure.


       The  different  types  of  events are defined as an enumeration of type
       gii_event_type. The possible values are:

       ·   evNothing          : event is not valid.

       ·   evCommand          : report command or do action.

       ·   evInformation      : notification of new information.

       ·   evExposure         : exposure event.

       ·   evKeyPress         : a key has been pressed.

       ·   evKeyRelease       : a key has been released.

       ·   evKeyRepeat        : automatically repeated keypress.

       ·   evPtrRelative       :  pointer  movement   reported   in   relative

       ·   evPtrAbsolute        :   pointer   movement  reported  in  absolute

       ·   evPtrButtonPress   : a pointer button has been pressed.

       ·   evPtrButtonRelease : a pointer button has been released.

       ·   evValRelative      : valuator change reported as a relative  value.

       ·   evValAbsolute      : valuator change reported as an absolute value.


       gii_event_mask  is  passed  to  various  event  handling  functions  to
       indicate  which  types of events the program is interested in. The list
       below sums the available event masks:

       ·   emCommand        : evCommand

       ·   emInformation    : evInformation

       ·   emExpose         : evExpose

       ·   emKeyPress       : evKeyPress

       ·   emKeyRelease     : evKeyRelease

       ·   emKeyRepeat      : evKeyRepeat

       ·   emKey            : Any of evKeyPress, evKeyRelease or evKeyRepeat

       ·   emPtrRelative    : evPtrRelative

       ·   emPtrAbsolute    : evPtrAbsolute

       ·   emPtrButtonPress : evPtrButtonPress

       ·   emButtonRelease  : evButtonRelease

       ·   emPtrMove        : Any of evPtrRelative or evPtrAbsolute

       ·   emPtrButton      : Any of evPtrButtonPress or evPtrButtonRelease

       ·   emPointer        : All pointer events

       ·   emValRelative    : evValRelative

       ·   emValAbsolute    : evValAbsolute

       ·   emValuator       : Any of evValRelative or evValAbsolute

       ·   emAll            : Any event type

       ·   emNothing        : Matches no event type
