Scroll-able Command Line Window
« on: January 26, 2024, 10:02:05 pm »
Hello

Maybe this is very basic but I don't know how to do this.

How can we have a Command line window that is scroll-able? that means that you can scroll back and see all the stuff that passed by on the commands response that is gone.  Is there a way to do that with 4OS2 ?

Regards

EPM is another choice. Command-->Create command shell.
If you only need a small buffer, mode Co80,100 works.

Right click on your OS2 command prompt window section.

Under the Properties tab, you will find the following under the program parameters

/k cls

Changed to the following

/k MODE 80,102

Close and now open the prompt window.  You should see the scroll bar.  If the Window is too wide, change the 80 to 70 or 60.

That is it.

Yes, but this simply expands the TOTAL window buffer to 102 vertical lines. It is not a continuous buffer that allows you to scroll all the way back to the start of the session.

For that functionality I would recommend MESHELL as well.
