normal-cursor: preference variable

Default value: 98099

This variable holds the shape of the cursor in insert mode (as opposed to overwrite mode). It contains a code that specifies the top and bottom edges of the cursor, such as 3006, which specifies a cursor that begins on scan line 3 and extends to scan line 6 on a character box. The topmost scan line is scan line 0.

Scan lines above 50 in a cursor shape code are interpreted differently. A scan line number of 99 indicates the highest-numbered valid scan line (just below the character), 98 indicates the line above that, and so forth. For example, a cursor shape like 1098 produces a cursor that extends from scan line 1 to the next-to-last scan line, one scan line smaller at top and bottom than a full block cursor.

See normal-gui-cursor for the Windows or X11 equivalent.
