[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.
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
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
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.
