Trying to get a simple learning program working. It works fine except I see a cursor(which I don't want). I have tried noecho and leaveok but both don't seem to make a difference.
My python is primitive but here goes:
Running the program just creates a box and you move around a '@' using vi keys. But the program shows a @ symbol with a blocky cursor always to the right of it.
screen = curses.initscr()
screen.addch(y, x, "@")
c = screen.getch()
if c==ord('j'): y=y+1
elif c==ord('k'): y=y-1
elif c==ord('h'): x=x-1
elif c==ord('l'): x=x+1
elif c == ord('q'): break
I have googled I have read, no luck. Help.
Edit: added [CODE] tags...

Try curses.curs_set(0) to remove the cursor.

OK, I could have swore I tried that before but received an attribute error.
But it works now, so I must have had a typo, so confused.
But my sincere thanks.

Those of you on windows (me included) may be interested in the wCursors module...
Basically this module seems to be a clone of Pythons core cursor module for windows
