[ setheight height ]
This sets the screen-height of your terminal. It is used to give you a
chance to read long notes, and long help texts. It is used on almost all
long texts. <nr> works in the same way as it does for SETWIDTH and
the minimum screen height is eight lines.
When a text is longer than your configured screen-height, a [RETURN]
prompt will be shown, indicating that there is more text. Simply
pressing return will show the next page of text. If a normal command
is written, the rest of the text is discarded, if that is not
wanted, the command can be prefixed with a @ character, ie "@look".
The "repeat" command can be used to repeat the current text page,
the "tail" command can sometimes be used to just show the end of
the text and if the text is really long, "find" can be used to find
a word in the text.
