NAME
     cursor -- set cursor shape	for the	pcvt VT220 video driver

     The options are as	follows:

     -d	     Specifies a device	for which the cursor shape is set.

     -n	     Sets the virtual screen number to apply the following parameters
	     to.  Not specifying this parameter	implies	the current virtual
	     screen or the screen referenced by	the -d parameter.

     -s	     Specifies the starting (top) scanline the cursor should have.

     -e	     Specifies the last	(bottom) scanline the cursor should have.
