    ' Create a 32x32 color cursor shaped somewhat like a yin-yang symbol.
    ' (The bit masks come from Microsoft's documentation on the API cursors function, just to
    ' give them their due credit.) Note how the masks are loaded into the arrays. The new
    ' cursor is then set to be the cursor for 10 seconds.
    Dim hnewcursor As Long ' newly created cursor
    Dim holdcursor As Long ' receives handle of default cursor
    Dim andbuffer As String, xorbuffer As String ' buffers for masks
    Dim andbits(0 To 127) As Byte ' stores the AND mask
    Dim xorbits(0 To 127) As Byte ' stores the XOR mask
    Dim c As Integer, retval As Long ' counter and return value

    ' Unfortunately, VB does not provide a nice way to load lots of information into an array.
    ' To load the AND and XOR masks, we put the raw hex values into the string buffers
    ' and use a loop to convert the hex values into numeric values and load them into
    ' the elements of the array. Yes, it's ugly, but there's no better way. Note the
    ' use of the line-continuation character here. Each sequence of eight hex
    ' characters represents one line in the 32x32 cursor.
