I believe what you want is:
int curs_set(int visibility);
The curs_set routine sets the cursor state is set to invisible,
normal, or very visible for visibility equal to 0, 1, or 2
respectively. If the terminal supports the visibility requested, the
previous cursor state is returned; otherwise, ERR is returned.
