To get the current line (row) location of the cursor, use the csrlin variable.
lin = csrlin 'record current line col = pos(0) 'record current column locate 12, 36 'center the cursor print "Basmark" locate lin, col 'restore positionsaves the current vertical position of the cursor in the variable lin and the current horizontal position of the cursor in the variable col. It then moves the cursor to line 12, column 36, and prints the string "Basmark" there. Finally, it moves the cursor back to the saved position as specified by the values of lin and col.
