# locate¶

## Purpose¶

Positions the cursor in the window.

## Format¶

locate m, n;


## Examples¶

// Get current row position of cursor
r = csrlin;

// Get current column positin of cursor
c = csrcol;

// Clear screen
cls;

// Place cursor at r, c
locate r,c;


In this example the window is cleared without affecting the cursor position.

## Remarks¶

locate locates the cursor in the current output window.

m and n denote the row and column, respectively, at which the cursor is to be located.

The origin (1,1) is the upper left corner.

m and n may be any expressions that return scalars. Non-integers will be truncated to an integer.
