CURSOR(1)               OpenBSD Reference Manual (i386)              CURSOR(1)

     cursor - set cursor shape for the pcvt VT220 video driver

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

     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 cur-
     rent size of the characterfont in use, on EGA and VGA boards sizes of 8,
     14 and 16 scanlines are currently supported.

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

     No known bugs
