Advantage of cursor

Hi,
 
 I have to insert rows, generated from an SQL statement into a table.
 I thought of Insert into <table_name> select ...
 
But some existing procedures, are using cursor and loop to insert into the tables.
 Why do i need to use a cursor, when i can use an insert into select?
 Please advise.
