PAUSE LINES (SET)Name:
This command allows you to specify a given number of lines. When this number of lines has been printed to the terminal screen, a "?" is printed and execution is halted until a carriage return is entered.
This is similar to a PAUSE command. However, a PAUSE command only pauses the output when a PAUSE is explicitly entered. In contrast, a SET PAUSE LINES needs to be entered only once and the pause will be activated automatically when the specified number of lines has been printed.
If the number of pause lines is set to zero or a negative value, no pause will be generated.
If you have activated the pause and wish to de-activate it later in the session, you can do this by entering a "0" at the "?" prompt. You can also enter a SET PAUSE LINES 0 command.
where <value> specifies the number of lines to output to the screen before pausing and prompting for a carriage return.
