Create a cursor from embedded resource

Hi, ALL,
On Windows and OSX I can have an embedded resource and so I can create cursor by simply referencing the name of the appropriate resource.

However GTK application doesn’t have a notion of resources and therefore all I can do is convert the “bitmap” into bits and then create a cursor from the embedded data.

Is it possible to create a cursor by just referencing the embedded bits variable?

Something like:

static const unsigned char mycursor[] =

GdkCursor *cursor = gdk_cursor_new_from_pixbuf( "mycursor" );

(pseudocode above)

Thank you.
