using Sun Solaris 8, develop by typing code into the xemacs editor, no graphic just command lines,  nothing fancy, using terminal to compile and execute. so setting the cursor also means setting the display position for the terminal. am wondering the above metioned API works for Sun Solaris? or just for Windows? thanks alot
