Use this function to get the number of mouse input devices available.

This API is not limited to mice. Should it say pointing" or similar instead to specify the type of input device (ie: not a keyboard) without being overly specific?"


int SDL_GetNumInputDevices(void)

Return Value

Returns 0 on success or a negative error code on failure; call SDL_GetError() for more information. ??? Source?
