    Configuring the Display Terminal

    You can specify the number of lines that appear on a terminal screen and the number of characters that appear on a line.

    To configure the display terminal:

    • Set the number of lines on a screen. If a command generates more lines than the number configured, the output pauses after each screen. You can use the value 0 for not pausing the output. The number of lines can be set in the range 0–512.
      host1#terminal length 25
    • Set the width of the display terminal. The number of characters on a screen line can be set in the range 30–512.
      host1#terminal width 80
