Fwd: Changing the cursor in CLIM1.1

    Lucid hasn't responded to this one ... anyone got ideas? 

There is no interface to do this in CLIM 1.1.  There might be some
kludges you can use, but I don't know what they would be under either
Lucid or MCL.

In CLIM 2.0, you can use (SETF (POINTER-CURSOR <pointer>) <x>) to
temporarily change the shape of the cursor, or you can SETF the
SHEET-POINTER-CURSOR attribute of a sheet.

    CLIM1.1, Lucid and MCL2.0.

    There's nothing in the 1.1 manual on changing the mouse cursor (as a
    function of what command is active).  From this I infer that it isn't
    supported in a general way.

    I know how to do it on the mac. Can Lucid tell me how to change the
    cursor without using the functions that require that I load
    windows.lisp, which uses an incompatible windowing system? (E.g., you
    could tell me what the stuff in windows.lisp is calling so I can call it
