I stand, or sit, corrected..Actually, you gave a link which discussed
So, yes, I am using a terminal window and I would like to increase its
buffer. (It is now clear that a console window's buffer is even smaller
than a terminal's buffer).
Any thoughts...Or should I just go with 'script' or
re-directs...arrrggghhhh! more bits of information to stuff into the

But my mythfilldatabase works!
