"one screenfull" what's that. When I started interactive programming it was
on an teletype with continuous scroll of paper - you tended to print one or
teo lines at a time - just t6o save time!

Then 24 (or 25) lines of 80 cols for alot of terminals. I always chaffed at
the restriction of the number of lines of those screens, but I've always
taken 80 cols os a sensible line length. Nowadays I have xtemrs set to be
aprox 40 x 80. But lots of people I've worked with have one terminal screen
filling the whole screen - with _far_ too much on the screen to digest

So what size is a screenfull?
