[AmigaOS 3.1 Command Reference/Pointer] 


Format: POINTER [FROM <filename>] [EDIT] [USE] [SAVE] [CLIPUNIT <clipboard unit>] Template: FROM, EDIT/S, USE/S, SAVE/S, CLIPUNIT/K Purpose: To change the appearance of the screen pointer. Path: Extras:Prefs/Pointer Specification: POINTER without any arguments or with the EDIT argument opens the Pointer editor. The FROM argument lets you specify a file to open. This must be a file that was previously saved with the Save As menu item of the Pointer editor. For example, if you have saved a special configuration of the Pointer editor to a file in the Presets drawer, you can use the FROM argument to open that file. If the USE switch is also given, the editor will not be opened, but the settings in the FROM file will be used. If the SAVE switch is given, the editor will not open, but the settings in the FROM file will be saved. CLIPUNIT determines which Clipboard Unit the pointer will use during cut and paste operations. Example: 1> POINTER Prefs/Presets/Pointer.star USE Loads and uses the pointer saved in the Pointer.star file. If the system is rebooted, the previously saved pointer will appear.
