E1027: GlinkW, non-standard screen size

Product: GlinkW
Platform: All
Status: Fixed for 7.2.4, 7.1.8, 6.2.8
Last updated: 2004-12-08 14:32:33

If you use the 'adjust screen rows/columns' option
in Settings->Screen->Window Attributes then you can
resize your terminal screen to something other than
the normal 24x80 screen. Many Unix applications are
aware of screen size and will make use of any
additional screen space you provide in this way.

However, Glink was not providing the information
at login time, only when the screen was actually
resized. This meant that if you logged into the
host with (say) a 40-line screen then the host
would only use the standard 24-line area, at least
until you resized the screen to something else.

Note that with the default command line you will
not be able to resize to anything larger than 43
lines - if you wish to use more than this you
should use the /Rnn parameter to specify a larger

Workaround: resize the screen after logging in
rather than before.
