CURSOR(1)               FreeBSD General Commands Manual              CURSOR(1)

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

SYNOPSIS
     cursor [-d device] [-n screenno] [-s lineno] [-e lineno]

DESCRIPTION
     The cursor utility allows the user to set the cursor shape in a given
     virtual screen of the above mentioned 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.

     Be aware of the fact that the parameters need to be adjusted for the
     current size of the characterfont in use, on EGA and VGA boards sizes of
     8, 14 and 16 scanlines are currently supported.

EXAMPLES
     The command ``cursor -s3 -e10'' sets the cursor on the current virtual
     screen to a rectangular shape on a 14 line VGA screen.

BUGS
     No known bugs
