Last updated on DECEMBER 26, 2014
Applies to:Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 4.3 to 5.1 [Release 4.0 to 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Under Oracle Secure Global Desktop (SGD) character applications (usually terminals) have a Lines parameter that can be set to make the terminal longer, have more lines of text. The Bash shell variable LINES is normally set to 24. If the application has its Lines parameter set to a value other than 24 the LINES variable will not be set properly.
Line number are ignored when I setup a character application.
The setting are as below:
An echo $LINES reveals 24 even though it is set to 25 above.
Lines paramter is set to a value other than the default of 24.
