When a STOP RUN is executed, the ACUCOBOL-GT runtime system normally places the cursor on the last line of the screen and then scrolls the screen one line. This allows the operating system prompt to appear on a new blank line at the bottom of the screen. To inhibit this behavior, set EXIT_CURSOR to 0 (off, false, no). This causes the runtime system to leave the cursor in its current location when the program exits. The default value 1 (on, true, yes) causes the standard ACUCOBOL-GT cursor positioning.

This variable has no effect on Windows systems.
