    I think it has to be possible because you can edit a file in lx then go to SHOW->132 Columns.  Does anyone how do you get more columns and/or rows from the command line?

    Thanks

    Not a task for the faint of heart, since it's not a config option for the pt80-e terminal, but you can take on editting the termcap for the pt80 terminal at $LAWDIR/system/termdef/pt80.ti (I think)   - but the last time I used 'tic' to compile one, Moses was a boy, so that is as much as I can offer.  The Internet University will have info on most popular termnal emulations, but the pt80 is Lawson proprietary, so...  good luck!

    Another option, if you’re using LID on UNIX is possibly ‘termtype’
    (It *may* work on Windows also)

    termtype does not appear to exist anywhere, so it doesn't work for me. I have LATERM=unixwin, perhaps I can edit the file $LAWDIR/system/termdef/univwin in a hex editor if I can determine the format.
