nget-line

Arguments: window-or-screen start-position old-position &optional scroll-p cursor

A destructive version of get-line. window-or-screen should be a window or the screen. The screen is the value returned by (screen *system*). See screen and *system*.

The old-position argument is modified to be the endpoint chosen by the user and then returned. Like get-line, this function waits for the user to press or unpress a mouse button after moving the mouse about. Rubber band lines are drawn continuously to follow mouse movement during the wait, beginning at start-position.

If scroll-p is true, the window identified by window-or-screen will be scrolled if the cursor moves outside it. Sets the stream cursor to cursor while running. If the cursor argument is t, a stream default is used (typically the cross-hair cursor).
