"Syntax error near unexpected token `('"

JUST mouse movement, nothing else? How far would

Code:
read -n1 TMP </dev/input/mice

get you, given "mice" IS the mouse in question?


Please note that in your post #1 script having a bash "shebang" and python commands (without specifying or calling) the repsective interpreter is doomed to fail.

NAME
syntax - Activate syntax extensions VERSION
version 0.004 SYNOPSIS
# either use syntax 'foo'; # or use syntax foo => { ... }; # or use syntax qw( foo bar ), baz => { ... }; DESCRIPTION
This module activates community provided syntax extensions to Perl. You pass it a feature name, and optionally a scalar with arguments, and the dispatching system will load and install the extension in your package. The import arguments are parsed with Data::OptList. There are no standardised options. Please consult the documentation for the specific syntax feature to find out about possible configuration options. The passed in feature names are simply transformed: "function" becomes Syntax::Feature::Function and "foo_bar" would become "Syntax::Feature::FooBar". METHODS
import syntax->import( @spec ); This method will dispatch the syntax extension setup to the specified feature handlers for the calling package. import_into syntax->import_into( $into, @spec ); Same as "import", but performs the setup in $into instead of the calling package. unimport syntax->unimport( @features ); This method will trigger uninstallations of the @features from the calling package. unimport_from syntax->unimport_from( $from, @features ); Same as "unimport", but will uninstall the @features from $from. RECOMMENDED FEATURES
o Syntax::Feature::Function Activates functions with parameter signatures. SEE ALSO
Syntax::Feature::Function, Devel::Declare BUGS
