16.7 Obuflimit

Command: obuflimit [limit]

If the output buffer contains more bytes than the specified limit, no more data will be read from the windows. The default value is 256. If you have a fast display (like xterm), you can set it to some higher value. If no argument is specified, the current setting is displayed. This property is set per display, not per window.

Command: defobuflimit limit

Same as the obuflimit command except that the default setting for new displays is also changed. Initial setting is 256 bytes. Note that you can use the special OL terminal capability if you want to have a terminal type dependent limit.
