Mr. Caret v1.0 - This program can set the
system-caret to not blink or to blink at any
specified rate. The caret is a blinking
symbol (typically a line or block) which
indicates where text will be inserted. Since
any program may set the blinkrate, the caret
is often blinking at an undesirable rate. Mr.
Caret fixes this deficiency by keeping the
caret blinking (or not) at the rate you like.

The caret is a blinking symbol located in a window. It usually shows
the location where the next text will be inserted. The caret is
typically an underline, a vertical line or a block. In Windows,
there is only one caret for the whole system. When a program sets
the blink rate, that rate will stay in effect until another program
resets it. Unfortunately, this means that the caret is often not
blinking at the rate you would like. It is particularly difficult
to cause the caret to not blink at all.
Mr. Caret allows you to set the caret blinkrate to any speed you like.
Or you may set the caret to not blink at all. Mr. Caret keeps track
of the blinkrate to ensure that no program changes the blinkrate to
Mr. Caret does NOT change the default blinkrate which is set from the
Control Panel and is stored in WIN.INI. When Mr. Caret is disabled or
not running, the blink rate reverts to this system default.
Mr. Caret is only $8. It is not crippled in any way.
