Macintosh OS/left handed cursor


Is there any way to get a left handed cursor for OS X ?
In OS 8 there were several left hand cursors on the web,
but not now.

I also sober why Apple isn't interested in providing it.
Would it be a tech-difficulty for them to do so ?
I assumed it would be a simple task for their engineers !

I assume a cursor arrow that points to the right.
You can use the following app called Mousecape:

After downloading, installing both the app and the helper app, do the following:
Go to the Mousecape preferences and choose “I am left handed”.
Dump the system cursors into a cape from the menu: “Capes” → “Dump Cursors”
Apply the Cursor Dump cape (right click → apply)

Did not test this, good luck.
