There are at least two odometer applets: one in the gnome-applets package
and the other one (mine) can be found at The latter one is based on
XOdometer, sporting a number of units to measure the distance your
pointer has travelled, from light nanoseconds to nautical miles, while the
former one features fancy displays.

If you really want to code another one, take a look at my
implementation's source code for an answer to your question.
