Pausing Output

Using the terminal command, you can set an important feature of the user interface: the pausing of lengthy output. For example, if you run a command that has more than one page of output, the router will pause after 24 lines with a More prompt. The value 24 is the default terminal length. Depending on the size of your terminal window, this might not be adequate. You can change the length and width using the terminal command, like this:

Router>terminal length 10
Router>terminal width 80

These commands set the terminal length to 10 and the width to 80, which means the router will pause after 10 lines of output and that each of these lines will be 80 characters long. You can disable the pausing altogether by setting the terminal length to 0:

Router>terminal length 0
