Suppose my mouse is associated to /dev/.../event1 and /dev/.../mouse1.

I was reading the byte streams of those files, and I noticed that event1 gives much more information than mouse1, which sometimes returns the same thing when doing different actions.

What is the real input of the mouse? Im trying to write a mouse driver by myself so I need this information.
