Terminal scrolling
« on: January 30, 2021, 11:25:38 pm »
Greetings,

This may be a dumb ? But is there a way so that I can scroll in a terminal when I want to see previous parts? Like binkd is always running but I may want to scroll back and have a look at something?

Regards

Rick

You could log everything and scroll back in an editor (not all will allow viewing an open file but some will).
Something like,
Code: [Select]
blinkd.exe 2>&1 | tee blinkd.log
will pipe stdout and stderr to tee.exe which will then both write it to a file and also to the console.
If you only want to scroll back a bit, you ca make the terminal have more lines, there's about a hundred line limit with 80 char lines,
Code: [Select]
mode co80,100
