NAME

int XDefineCursor(Display *display, Window w, Cursor cursor); int XUndefineCursor(Display *display, Window w); ARGUMENTS
cursor Specifies the cursor that is to be displayed or None. display Specifies the connection to the X server. w Specifies the window. DESCRIPTION
If a cursor is set, it will be used when the pointer is in the window. If the cursor is None, it is equivalent to XUndefineCursor. XDefineCursor can generate BadCursor and BadWindow errors. The XUndefineCursor function undoes the effect of a previous XDefineCursor for this window. When the pointer is in the window, the par- ent's cursor will now be used. On the root window, the default cursor is restored. XUndefineCursor can generate a BadWindow error. DIAGNOSTICS
BadAlloc The server failed to allocate the requested resource or server memory. BadCursor A value for a Cursor argument does not name a defined Cursor. BadWindow A value for a Window argument does not name a defined Window. SEE ALSO

Stop cursor reading a value.

Is it possible, in a Korn Shell script, to stop a cursor when I use the read command? More exactly, I try to have the cursor in a same line reading a value but not in a new line.
