Howto increase the terminal window buffer size


Hi,

I'm working with mysql at command line. My problem is that for large tables I can't see them completely on the terminal window.

How can I increase the "buffer" of the terminal window making it use a horizontal scroll?

On WinXP terminal this is called "Screen Buffer Size". Anyboby knows how can I increase this buffer on linux?

NB: I know that '\G' on mysql could show me the table on vertical, but I doesn't like much of this view.

Thanx in advance
AkiL

i just found this, looks like it is what your looking for. i think the text wrapping is controled by the terminal, such as Konsole. im not sure which terminals support horizontal scroll bars, but i think im going to try the terminator.
