;;; Synched up with: Not synched.

;;; Commentary:

;; This code will enable the use of the infamous 'wheel' on the new
;; crop of mice.  Under XFree86 and the XSuSE X Servers, the wheel
;; events are sent as button4/button5 events.

;; I for one would prefer some way of converting the button4/button5
;; events into different event types, like 'mwheel-up' or
;; 'mwheel-down', but I cannot find a way to do this very easily (or
;; portably), so for now I just live with it.

;; To enable this code, simply put this at the top of your .emacs
;; file:
;; (autoload 'mwheel-install "mwheel" "Enable mouse wheel support.")
;; (mwheel-install)

on a normal wheel event, and the second is the amount to scroll when the
wheel is moved with the shift key depressed.

Each item should be the number of lines to scroll, or `nil' for near
full screen.
A near full screen is `next-screen-context-lines' less than a full screen."
