RE: Detecting mouse position and raising a window

I did some search on this 6 years ago while writing a portable general input system, and I'm pretty sure fltk won't offer access to it. Grabbing the mouse pointer position all over the screen is pretty easy in X (just look at the source code of xeyes...), however, it's hard under Windows (search the web for "hook mouse windows"). There are good reasons for an API to not support it, because it opens a door for certain phishing attacks by secretely recording mouse and keyboard input.
