 +======Synopsis:​======
 +$__curpos__()
 +
 +======Technical:​======
 +   * Arguments, if any, are ignored.
 +   * This function returns the "​index"​ of the cursor'​s position in the "​current"​ input line ($L).
 +   * As with all "​index"​ values, counting starts from zero.
 +   * Counting begins after the input prompt, if any.
 +   * The "​current"​ input line is the last screen to receive a key-press. If you use this function outside of a key binding, this may be an important consideration. ​ Use within a key-binding should be safe.
 +
 +======Practical:​======
 +This function is used, in conjunction with $[[indextoword]]() to retrieve the
 +word "​under"​ the cursor. ​ This is most useful with tab completion.
 +
 +======History:​======
 +This function first appeared in ircII-2.2.2.
