PocketPUTTY screen size workaround

Postby edoolittle » Sun Jul 24, 2005 7:37 pm

Hi, Thanks for your review of PocketPUTTY. I agree that the biggest problem with the application is that the input box at the bottom of the scrren can obscure the command line. I have a work-around: if you run the screen(1) application at the remote end, and enter the command-mode command

height -d 15

(change the number to suit; 15 works for me), scrolling will take place at 15 lines. The command can be placed in a file in your home directory called, e.g., .pocketputty.screenrc, and you can then run the command

screen -c.pocketputty.screenrc

to start scrren(1) at 15 lines height. You can place that command in a shell script in your path called, e.g., pp, which looks like this:

#!/bin/sh
exec screen -c $HOME/.pocketputty.screenrc

Then running pp as soon as you log in will fix your screen. There's an added bonus in that screen(1) provides its own scrollback buffer so you can dispense with the scrollbar too.

Thanks for the tip. As I'm not a Unix/Linux guru, I don't know if that will work, but I hope it helps others.

Of course, the downside is that it only works for servers that you control; for servers that you don't, you'll still have the same problem.

So this a remote terminal access like Telnet or SSH, but more secure?

It is an implementation of SSH. The author ported PuTTY on the PC to the Pocket PC.
