Is there any way to capture/record the input events from keyboard, as well as from mouse using C.

Thanks in advance

Keyboard interrupts?

What OS? Are you trying to write a device driver or a low level hook? Or, do you want to use high level apis and capture events for your applications? Are you working in the context of a GUI?

Which desktop?

I might be able to help work through this, but honestly, it's not something that I've done before in a Linux environment.
