Mouse beyond border

I trying to make a first person like camera, that will rotate when you move the mouse. I have succeeded, however, the mouse only goes to the screen edges and stops. So basically there is no way for me to turn around, I am confined to the 180 degrees directly in front of me, how can I detect if the user is moving the mouse still even if the actual mouse pointer is already at the border of the application.

easy, continually move the cursor to the middle of the screen each frame and just read the change from the default.

Sorry, but exactly how would I reposition the mouse?

Not sure if it matters, but I should mention that I am using GLUT.

glutWarpPointer is the function you need.

Thank you for your help, I got it working exactly as I intended.

However, there is just one more issue: How could I “hide” the mouse pointer, so you don’t see it flickering back and forth in the middle of the screen?
