This command is a hold over from the days where things like this were needed. It still works from a functional perspective, for the most part, but it will not work correctly with things like menus, as they are not designed to function with a buffer. We have no plans to support this functionality. Use this at your own risk.
If the lines you see scroll off the top of your screen too quickly for you to read and your client program is such that any lines scrolling off the top are gone forever, you can use the @pagelength command to invoke page buffering to limit the number of lines sent at a time. E.g., if your terminal has a 24 line screen, you can do @pagelength 24 and output will stop every 24 lines if you don't type any other commands.
You will need to use the @more command to continue reading output once it has been stopped. Make sure you read `help @more' before setting @pagelength.
@pagelength 0 means no page buffering will be done by the MOO.
By default the MOO will assume you have an infinitely wide terminal screen, so you may wish to set @linelength as well, and ensure wrapping is on with @wrap on. (See help @linelength and help @wrap.) As with word wrapping, you are best off running a client that can do its own page buffering; the MOO server's page buffering is inherently slower and many MUD's do not have page buffering at all. *Last Updated: 10/07/20 by Fengshui*
