How do I see all text in console?
I feel I should know this but I can't seem to find the answer -
After typing commands in a console which return a lot of text, I am only able to scroll so far up and can't get to the beginning of the text.
What is the correct way to do this?
use a pager, there are 2 installed usually
1) "more" - really only there for compatibility reasons, you can only scroll down
2) "less" - more or less a joke on "more"s behalf, this one can scroll up and down.
terminals and consoles have a limit to the number of lines that they save. i don't know what the default is, and it's almost certainly different for every terminal. anyway, i use aterm, and i know that the option is like this:
aterm -sl 4000
if you want to be able to scroll through the last 4000 lines of output.
