Tkinter.Text widget - how to get text cursor position?

Posts: n/a
Is it possible to get position (in numbers) of the insertion cursor? As
I understood, Text widget uses mark named INSERT to store it, which is
available globally by just referencing INSERT, but how could I get
actual coordinate numbers of the mark?
I need this because I want not just to insert string at, but to examine
text before and after the insertion cursor. I can probably use .get() to
extract the halves of text before and after cursor, but it'd be better
just to know the position.
