    Thats right..I could use the WIDTH statement.

    Thanks to all for the help, and taking time to investigate this.

    I know WIDTH works. It's just that 'WIDTH' would not be my first 'guess' for the name of a command which would affect HEIGHT.

    Thanks, Jerry! I am woefully ignorant of the PB/DOS builtin
    capabilities, but am reasonably familiar with using DOS INT's.
    That's why I posted my replies. Rather than doing that, I should've
    gone to the IDE and looked up the WIDTH statement in the Help, since
    you mentioned it. Tim, I'd suggest looking at the WIDTH statement,
    rather than using my replies about DOS services.

    Why would I look for a WIDTH statement to increase the number of lines? Shouldn't there be a
    HEIGHT function to do that?
    I've had no problems getting 50 line with.....WIDTH 80, 50

    Hmmmm...been experimenting with that DOS service, and it might not be
    as helpful as I thought...

    Maybe Mr. Hanlin will jump in...he's pretty darned knowledgeable
    about the DOS INT stuff. Mr. Edmonds is, also.

    Correction! I just re-read Ralf's List for that DOS service, and it
    might RETURN special information for SOME BIOS's/adaptor's. Apparently,
    setting up the service to CALL it is pretty straightforward.

    Tim,

    Look at the DOS INT 10h, service 00h (i.e., AH = 00h). I decided
    not to come up with the code for you because, from what I briefly
    read in Ralf Brown's Interrupt List, SOME BIOS's/adaptor's might
    require special settings, and I would not want my code to trash
    other people's programs/systems.

    started a topic DOS Screen Mode

    DOS Screen Mode

    Is there another way to change a text screen (screen 0) to 50 lines, other than
    shelling to DOS with SHELL"mode con:lines=50"?
    TIA
