When a line is exactly as wide as the window, Emacs displays the cursor in the right fringe instead of using two lines. Different bitmaps are used to represent the cursor in the fringe depending on the current buffer's cursor type.

If this is non-
nil, lines exactly as wide as the window (not counting the final newline character) are not continued. Instead, when point is at the end of the line, the cursor appears in the right fringe.
This variable specifies the mapping from logical cursor type to the actual fringe bitmaps displayed in the right fringe. The value is an alist where each element
)specifies the fringe bitmaps used to display a specific logical cursor type in the fringe. Here, cursor specifies the logical cursor type and bitmap is a symbol specifying the fringe bitmap to be displayed for that logical cursor type.
