xterm: set mouse pointer type for ncurses

Hi, I'm new here.

I am trying to build a curses based program, and I'd like to know if 
there is an option to change the mouse cursor type.

The default is the text selection cursor, but I need to use the 'normal' 
pointer style, if that makes sense to any of you.

Is there a control sequence (or at least a command line parameter) for 
this available?


PS: I'm sorry if i broke any rules and apologize in advance.
