RE: CONTINUEOUS SCROLL (Re: Msg 41158)
From: MARTYGOODMAN To: BORNEMANN
What Don suggested is one way to have more stuff scroll onto
your screen. If what you want is a continuous display, tho,
try (in forum) READ NONSTOP. This will read message after message
without stopping, until you send Delphi a Control O. (control
Oh, the letter). Or a true line break. Note that the
response to control O will be slow, and you must be
patient. Sending a second one in a fit of impatience
will only CANCEL the first one!
Note you can also type READ NONSTOP 40000 (read continuously
all messages STARTING with message 40000) or READ NONSTOP 40000 FROM
MARTYGOODMAN TO HARBIE (read continuously all messages from
user MARTYGOODMAN and to user HARBIE starting at message 40000.
) Some other combinations will work (READ FROM MARTYGOODMAN
, for example, will start displaying all messages from user
marty goodman, starting at the first message, but not nonstop.)
Finally, note that if you use the FROM or TO option
for folks like me, DONHUTCHISON, JIMREED, etc. who have very very
many messages here in forum, the command will take a minute or three
to “take”. But it will work.
