You must call AppStartMouse to initialize memory before calling AppUpdateMouse. AppUpdateMouse will wait for a keypress, but will only return when an arrow key, or the enter key, is pressed. If an arrow key is pressed, the mouse cursor coordinates will be automatically updated. The below example allows a user to move the mouse cursor around the screen, and returns once the enter key is pressed.
