Originally AmigaOS only handles two pointers, the normal pointer and the busy pointer. But modern GUI design has created a need for a more versatile range of pointers to give a more precise feedback to the user such as resizing, zooming and drag&drop. From OS4.0 32Bit pointers was introduced by using icon images in the env(arc):sys/ folder for the normal and busy pointer. This project adds a range of other pointers in the same way. For non 32Bit capable systems and/or screens applications are recommended to fall back to the original normal/busy pointers.
Thanks to Martin Merz for the pointer images and Simon Archer for insight into the AmigaOS icon system.
