/3 force 3-button mode (for Microsoft and PS/2 mice only).
/B Cancel run if mouse services are already present.
/L Swap left and right button.
/M Try *old* Mouse Systems / Genius for non-PnP mice.
/N Load CuteMouse as new TSR, even if CuteMouse is already loaded
(useful for batch files which unload CuteMouse at end).
/O Enable PS2 and BIOS USB wheel detection (might hang).
/P Force PS/2 mouse mode.
/R[h[v]] Horizontal / vertical resolution: h,v = 1-9, or 0 for auto.
(no value = use default: auto for h, or "as h" for v).
/S[c[i]] Force serial mouse mode at COM port c (c=1-4, default is COM1)
with IRQ line i (i=2-7, default is IRQ4 for COM 1/3 and IRQ3
for COM 2/4).
/U Uninstall driver, remove TSR from memory.
/V Reverse search: find PS/2 after serial mouse.
/Y Forces serial mouse search, but, unlike option /S, doesn't
disable PS/2 support.
/W Do not allow CuteMouse to move itself into UMB.
/? Shows the help.
CTMOUSE does not support USB mice.
CTMOUSE can be loaded in CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS or in
AUTOEXEC.BAT or in the command line.
CTMOUSE2 is a new branching of CuteMouse which supports the mouse wheel.
It provides a wheel API (application programmer's interface), so that
FreeDOS programs can use the mouse wheel.
