Try pressing the Shift-PageUp or the Shift-PageDown keys.

Sometimes I'll run programs and redirect the output to a text file, such as './program > output.txt.' I find that very helpful with stuff I want to take a close look at. Additionally, you could also pipe the output into more, like this './program | more.' That will pause the output one screenful at a time.

A couple of ideas anyway....

if you are running these programs in an xterm, you can set xterm command line options for scroll back..

ie. xterm -sl 3000 -sb

this is start an xterm with a scroll bar and a scroll buffer of 3000 bytes. Then you can just click on the scroll bar to go back. However, redirecting to a file and then viewing the file might be a better approach (runthis > runthis.out)

Hope this helps,
Peter.

Sorry,

the -sl <number> is the number of lines to save in the buffer..

Peter.
