Cursor




1. <hardware> A visually distinct mark on a display indicating where newly typed text will be inserted.

The cursor moves as text is typed and, in most modern editors, can be moved around within a document by the user to change the insertion point.

2. <database> In SQL, a named control structure used by an application program to point to a row of data.

The position of the row is within a table or view, and the cursor is used interactively so select rows from columns.
