How to rotate mouse x y axis in mac osx?

Hey,

I rotated my display by 90 degrees, because it's comfortable way for me to work with one particular software, so I was wondering is there any program which could flip x y mouse axis back, so I don't need to flip my mouse physically, which is very uncomfortable for me. Google finds only windows os related solutions.

Isn't this automatically set when you rotate the display, should be that way.

sorry I think i've made mistake trying to explain this I mean I want to rotate display but leave mouse x y axis the same, so i don't need to bend my neck or flip my mouse. Display is rotated but monitor isn't physically rotated. Display rotates with mouse axis in system prefences and I want only to rotate display, not the mouse axis.

I might misread your explanation; but good that you found your solution.
