Hello Everybody:
This is prelimenary work. I want to see all record from db.db on my dos screen. When I run program, it rolls down very fast and displays only few last records. Is there anyway to control this behavior? I wanna see each record # 1 to 24.
One more question, how to display code over here? I mean what tag should I have to use to display code?
Thanks in advance for response. BK

Not a Java solution but-
Try increasing the height and width of your DOS window.
You can do that by right-clicking on the title bar and clicking Properties.
If you make it roughly the size of your screen, 24 lines should easily print on the screen.
If that doesn't work, use brute force-increase your screen resolution !!
BTW can you post the code that you wrote to print all the records. Would be helful to me.
Thanks.

Hey Pat
Thanks for your response. I wanted to view content of db.db before I do anything. Here is my code I added it in Data class.

I get all output but I can view only few last records. I tried changing height and width of DOS windows but did not work. I am not sure but should be some way to add vertical scrollbar on DOS window so we can view all the output. By the way, what is brute force-increase? Could you please tell me how to do that?
Thanks BK

Hello,
Why don't you send the output to a text file instead or put in pauses (Sleep() etc) or put in readline() statements to pause the output.
(The best way would be to output to a textfile.)
