RE: does bash provide scrolling ?

Assuming that's what Jan is looking for (and I believe it is too), 9x doesn't
have this very useful capability in  Anyone who is interested 
can check out the discussion in the archives on this very subject
from a week or two back.  The short version is either get some 
commercial Win32 replacement for (4DOS or another product I
don't recall the name of) or work with rxvt (with or without X11).
