Sorry, no - the rotate command does not have any concept in it of knowing whether you are moving the mouse in a clockwise or counter-clockwise manner.

It is not even required for you to move the mouse around in rotate at all - you can just click an origin point and then type in a rotation angle.

Sorry, I'm not sure if I understand this part - do you mean you're calculating this just on the visual feedback information you get while you are moving the mouse around?

Because if you want to apply a specific clockwise angle you can do that just by entering it in with a negative sign in front of it, for example type in -90 to rotate clockwise by 90 degrees.
