rows and columns


Just a quick question.

I wanted to know what the standard dimensions are at the command prompt. What is the number of rows and columns in the shell? Does this differ from distro to distro, or is is a standard thing?

I think it's usually 80x25 or 80x50. It depends on the resolution the console uses.
