Both gnome-terminal and konsole have a setting to allow unlimited lines kept in the buffer. Gnome-terminal comes with the Gnome desktop software and Konsole comes with the KDE desktop software. They're both a lot better than xterm because they have more configuration options.

You could pipe the output of your program to a file. That would allow you to keep the output as long as you want and look at the output of different runs of your program.
./program > run01.output 2>run01.error

./program > run02.output 2>run02.error

If you're using a vanilla xterm, you can set the scrollback buffer using some command line options, like this:
xterm -sl 7000
If you launch xterm from your window manager's application menu, you'll have to update your menus in your desktop-environment specific menu editing tool. If you add the -sb option, it will show the scroll bar.

If you're using konsole, you can change the amount of history from the Settings menu (select the History menu item).

Note the history value for both xterm and konsole doesn't include the lines on the screen, so if your terminal is 25 lines high, you'll be able to see the number of history lines + 25.
