The word cursor is defined as a pointer on the display screen of a computer. It is used to fetch rows from a set of results. It is basically a data structure. It describes the results returned from an SQL Select statement. A pointer which leads to the next record in a set of query results is one of the variables in this type of structure. The results can be fetched using the pointer or cursor.

It is a character that blinks and indicates where the next character to be typed on the display screen of a computer will appear. In other words, the cursor indicates the exact position at which the person who is typing on a computer screen is working in a document or a program.

It is a vertical line. It is also known as the input focus, the point of insertion or simply as the pointer.
