RE: Please explain -nw switch and effects and equivalent .emacs command

>From the emacs man page.

-nw     Tells Emacs not to use its special interface to X.  If you use
this switch when invoking Emacs from an xterm(1) window, display is done
in that window.  This must be the first option specified in the command
line.

I would expect that no functions that use the mouse would not work when
the x-window interface is turned off, not just the home grown ones.  You
might want to read about Frame Parameters in the Emacs Lisp Reference
Manual, specifically read about cursor-type in the Window Frame
Parameters section.  This might allow you to make the cursor look like
you want it to and keep the mouse functions as well.

Cursor looks better with -nw switch but
home grown emacs functions that use the mouse
DON'T work with -nw switch!!!?!?!?

Is there anyway to correct mouse based functions
with -nw and add a line to .emacs so that I don't always
have to remember to type -nw or make an alias???

Thanks in advance,

Chris
