Question How to make VIM change cursor shape when it is in inserting mode.

I found that the rectangular shape cursor changes to bar shape when I change to input mode from command mode in GVIM. But I couldn't get this change on VIM. Is this possible? Thank you.

I searched for vim cursor shape, and the third hit from the top gave
the solution to your problem.
