I stand, or sit, corrected..Actually, you gave a link which discussed 
the differences.

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 
grey stuff. No wonder my hair is grey!

But my mythfilldatabase works!
