     I'd sure love to know that one, too.  Executing an:

$ ls /var/log/scripts/* Slackware crashes my synthesizer, probably from an over-filled 
buffer, as the directory is filled with scripts used to install  all the 
software on the system.  I'm sure there is some kind of CTS/RTS 
handshaking going on somewhere, but I can't find any info on it to set 
my synthesizer's parameters.  I wish I could help you.  I tried setting 
the LINES environment variable to 300 to see if the 'less' command would 
say more than 24 lines of text per screen, but I get nothing new. 
Sounds like we have similar problems, anyway.  If I find anything, I'll 
letcha know.


PS: Can anyone tell me how this message appears?  Finally got 
Thunderbird to take pasted text from Notepad in a reply, and am 
wondering if lines are still exceeding 72 characters per line.  TIA.
